This classic text is back, ready to aid radar engineers, research scientists and students. The Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves from Rough Surfaces remains a standard in the field, offering you complete instruction, in theoretical and practical terms, of the most frequently encountered scattering situations. You'll learn to calculate the effects of wave reflection by terrain, sea, atmospheric sheets, the earth and the planets. This book allows you to spot reference information because each topic is discussed throroughly and independently. Order your copy of this comprehensive source on wave scattering.
