By Nicolas Pinel, Christophe Boulier

Electromagnetic wave scattering from random tough surfaces is an lively, interdisciplinary zone of analysis with myriad useful functions in fields equivalent to optics, acoustics, geoscience and distant sensing.
Focusing at the case of random tough surfaces, this e-book offers classical asymptotic versions used to explain electromagnetic wave scattering. The authors commence through outlining the fundamental suggestions proper to the subject earlier than relocating directly to examine the derivation of the scattered box less than asymptotic versions, according to the Kirchhoff-tangent airplane, so as to calculate either the scattered box and the statistical general intensity.
More elaborated asymptotic versions also are defined for facing particular situations, and numerical effects are offered to demonstrate those types. Comparisons with a reference numerical technique are made to substantiate and refine the theoretical validity domains.
The ultimate bankruptcy derives the expressions of the scattering intensities of random tough surfaces below the asymptotic types. Its expressions are given for his or her incoherent contributions, from statistical calculations. those effects are then in comparison with numerical computations utilizing a Monte-Carlo strategy, in addition to with experimental versions, for sea floor backscattering.

The following three spectra can be quoted: the spectra of Pierson, of Apel and of Elfouhaily et al. [ELF 97]. The latter, which was established in 1997, has been retrieved by experimental measurements [COX 54], contrary to the other two spectra. Indeed, it has been built on both experimental and theoretical bases that the previous two models did not consider. It represents a summary of the entirety of the work on this subject from the 1970s and has become a reference since then. The Elfouhaily et al.

That is why the RCS is defined from the density of the incident power. Also note that the scattering coefficient is often called normalized radar cross-section (NRCS), as it corresponds to a normalization of the RCS by the illuminated object size. In the optical domain, the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) has a slightly different definition from the scattering coefficient (or NRCS) in reflection σr . It can be shown [CAR 03a] that the BRDF is expressed by: ˆ ˆ ˆ r, K ˆ i ) = σr (Kr , Ki ) .

Consequently, the surface can be considered as very slightly rough or even flat if δφ π/2. Conversely, if δφ > π/2, the waves interfere destructively, and the surface can be considered as rough. To apply this local approach to the whole surface, it is necessary to consider a mean phenomenon, which implies quantifying this phenomenon by a statistical average on δφ. The mean value of the surface heights being taken as zero, ζA = 0, the Rayleigh roughness parameter is quantified by the variance of the phase variation 2 2 σδφ .
