Abstract:

The cross section for multiple scattering from anisotropic random media are calculated for scattering into forward and backward directions from slabs containing electron density or refractive index irregularities whose symmetry axes are aligned at an arbitrary angle to the slab face. The cross sections are calculated in the CFSB Simulative Forward-scatter Single- backscatter approximation using techniques used in RADC-TR-82-287 ADA127873 and extended here to include arbitrary turbulence spectra and, in particular, three-dimensional Kolmogoroff turbulence. Keywords Backscatter Random Propagation Anisotropic Greens function Forward scatter Multiple scatter Ionospheric irregularity and Correlation function.
