Paper Abstract

Phenomena that originate from the double passage of waves through the same turbulent inhomogeneities are discussed. The physical meaning of these phenomena is qualitatively demonstrated using simple examples of spherical waves scattering from point scatterers. The backscattering from extended bodies, i.e. coherently reflecting bodies and random large-scale rough surfaces, and coherence enhancement by backscattering are considered.
