Transverse electromagnetic electric (TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) creeping waves on a surface with an anisotropic impedance boundary condition are considered. An asymptotic theory is developed for creeping waves. The theory is valid near the line where the attenuation parameters of two different types of waves coincide and, therefore, standard asymptotics are inapplicable. Asymptotic formulas describing physical effects that occur when a creeping wave propagates across the degeneracy line are derived. It is found that, behind the degeneracy line, a propagating TE wave excites a TM wave with a small amplitude (of order O(k −1/6)) and a propagating TM wave excites a TE wave.
