Paper Abstract

Galilean satellites have completely extraordinary radar properties in centimeter wave range. The ratio of intensities of left-handed and right-handed components of circular polarization of back-scattered radiation goes beyond 1.0 for them. Radar geometrical albedo of satellites is notably large too.
