Cables buried in the seabed are objects of interests especially as companies have to verify that the buried depth of the cables is in the expected range, typically $1~m$. Although several measurement systems have been designed in the past, there is no solution available that provides an accuracy of $pm10~cm$ for this purpose. In our approach we suggest to model and measure the electrical field and electrical impedance to determine the depth of a sea cable. In the first step we develop an electrical static field model for analytic investigations. We validate the model by a simulation tool and provide results for critical environmental parameters that affect our measurement accuracy.
