World curves are presented of electric currents induced in electrically insulated oceans by Sq using a perfectly conducting sphere to simulate the underlying mantle. The curves are valid everywhere away from those coastal regions at which the sea bed rises steeply. In such cases an edge correction may be needed. The numerical computations are for periods of 6, 8, 12 and 24 hr and comparison is made with results obtained by others for a 24-hr period. Circulation conditions around the island are ignored in this note.
