Abstract:

Two different models of radar terrain return are presented. One is a Gaussian surface, and in that case two examples of the two-dimensional slope spectrum were treated. The other case is a distribution of isolated scatterers. The paper does not attempt to draw a strict correspondence between the models and actual terrain surfaces. Certain experiments, however, suggest themselves as a result of our treatment and from the results of such experimental programs one may arrive at a correspondence between actual physical examples of terrain and one or both of the models presented here.
