Getting a bit OT.. but
there's a lot of research on subsurface propagation, at all frequencies.
Low frequencies (<20kHz) are/were used for comms with submarines
Low frequencies are used in mines, caving, etc.
medium frequencies are used in geophysical prospecting
high frequencies (in the 3-30 MHz sense) don't propagate too well.
higher frequencies do, and are used in various and sundry sounders,
communications systems, orbiting and airborne imaging radar  (the latest fad
is looking for archaeological sites using UHF and L-band radars)

In any case, probably one of the leading theoretical researchers in this
sort of thing is J.R.Wait  --- search for "subsurface" and "wait" and you'll
get a host of references.
