Since ultrawideband (UWB) radar views the sea scattering surface in minute detail, the prediction of UWB sea clutter entails knowledge of the signal's physical origin, or at least a 'plausibility model' that describes likely sea clutter behavior under a given set of operational circumstances. Calculations are presently conducted for the rate at which the 'islands' of scattering that are generated by surface illumination of an evaporative layer above the sea surface can be expected to be encountered.
