Abstract:

This report documents the metric of root-mean-square RMS as a measure of terrain roughness- -- recognizing its limitations assumes no favored or predominate frequencies and accepting its historical significance to this point as the Armys measure of terrain roughness. Based on mathematics of the Fourier transform and duality, calculations are performed in the spacial and frequency domains to show equivalent measures of terrain roughness metric RMS.
