Abstract:

In this report the rough surface reflection coefficient for the coherent reflected field is derived. The result obtained assumes a plane wavefront incident on a Gaussian collection of sinusoidal surface waves with uniform phase distribution. The theoretical result obtained is compared with experimental data. In addition, the probability density function of sea wave elevations is obtained.
