Abstract

The dependence of the distribution function of a backscattered radar signal on the duration of sampling has been experimentally determined, with the signal normalized to the median value. Analysis of the data indicates that a two-scale statistical model may be applied in the conditions being considered and that an essential contribution to the statistics is from the signal variations induced by swell.
