An analytical expression is obtained for the radar reflection coefficient from a one-dimensional plasma. The formulation includes the effects of electron-neutral and electron-ion collisions and is applicable for either an exponential variation of the electron density with position or a variation of the form n sub ex n sub infinity1 e sup-xd.
