Measurements made of the power backscattered by a surface at angles near nornal incidence include contributions due to both coherent and incoherent scattering. Additionally, these contributions are weighted by the antenna pattern. Using a theoretical model to describe the backscattering from a rough soil surface, a procedure is developed for retrieving the true angular pattern of the backscattering coefficient ¿0 from measured estimates of a ¿0 , where the measured estimate is based on the… CONTINUE READING
