Summary of the depolarization equations.

External Internal
depol. depol.
Bregular FR (Eq. (8)) DFR (Eq. (11))
No depol.*
ΔRM internal (Eq. (12))

Bregular EFD (Eq. (9)) IFD (Eq. (10))

+ ΔRM foreground (Eq. (13))

Notes. (*) When the electromagnetic wave passes through an external magneto-ionic medium with a regular magnetic field, the polarization plane undergoes a rotation and its intensity remains constant; therefore, no depolarization occurs.
