Paper Abstract

Several approximations lead to a feasible method for calculating the effect of multi-path radar scattering at the sea surface. ONe of these is radial symmetry of the scattered microwave energy about the specular direction, according to which the scattered intensity depends on the 'Specular Deviation Angle'. This angle exhibits a stochastic variation that depends on the statistics of the sea surface and determines the average intensity of the scattered microwaves.
