Abstract:

Several methods for determining the radar scattering coefficient of the ocean surface, sigma o, all based on the technique developed by Trizna, have been applied to two sets of High-Frequency Over-the-Horizon data. One specific method is found to yield the best results. A method of operation of an HF OTH system to allow the estimation of sigma o is recommended. Keywords include Radar, High-frequency, Over-the-horizon, Scattering coefficient, Ocean surface, and Sea clutter.
