An equation is derived for the polarization of a high-frequency EM wave propagating through a cold plasma. The polarization is determined in a coordinate system fixed to the wave-normal. It is assumed that the plasma density varies slowly in only one direction and that the wave-normal and the external magnetic field B make arbitrary angles with that direction.
