Paper Abstract

The extended Huygens-Fresnel principle is used to develop a formulation for the backscattered intensity enhancement of a quasi-homogeneous source through a weak turbulence. Analytical expressions are presented which show the backscattered intensity enhancement as a function of the separation between the transmitter axis and the receiver. The dependence of the backscattered intensity enhancement on the coherence of the source, wave structure function, and the logamplitude covariance function are also investigated.
