Experimental Research of UHF Radio Backscattered from Fresh and Seawater Surface
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 11, 99-109, 2010
Abstract
The backscattering experiments of water surface by Ultra-High Frequency (UHF, 300 ~ 3000 MHz) Radar are presented in this paper. In order to study UHF radio propagation and backscatter mechanisms from fresh and salty water surfaces at a very low grazing angle, two experiments are carried out on Yangtze River bridge and cliff which face open sea with the same radar system. The physical parameters of different water surfaces are introduced as well as the signature of backscattered echoes.
