Short summary
This work explores the effect of topography on magnetotelluric (MT) data along a synthetic model of the Roorkee–Gangotri profile (RGP). Two correction procedures were used to remove topography distortion from MT data. Flat-earth and terrain correction responses (TCRs) show that both procedures are capable of removing the topography effect. The similar topographic response and TCRs confirm that there is no need for topography correction along the RGP, as the slope angle is less than 1°.
