For a two-dimensional problem and at microwave radar frequencies, this paper presents a method to compute the field scattered by a highly conducting (the impedance boundary condition is applied) rough sea surface in the presence of a duct having a linear-square refractive index profile below a medium of constant refractive index. In a previous paper, the corresponding Green's function, which allows us to solve the propagation problem, has been derived without considering the sea surface. Using… CONTINUE READING
