In this paper we model the thermoelectric magnetic field around isotropic inclusions in anisotropic media. It is demonstrated that while the presence of the inclusion will be the dominant source of the thermoelectric signal, the anisotropy of the host material will affect the signal. Although such a phenomenon will occur for all shapes of inclusions, for simplicity we shall demonstrate our theoretical and numerical modeling on the more mathematically tractable case of a cylindrical inclusion aligned along an axis of symmetry of an anisotropic metal medium.
