Backscattering of a vertically polarized, ultra-wide band HF pulse (3-30 MHz) from one-dimensional Pierson-Moskowitz impedance surfaces is studied using method of moments (MoM)-based numerical simulations. With the field source located near the surface, low-gazing regime is realized for the most of the illuminated region. The direct numerical solution is compared to approximate calculations based on the small perturbation method (SPM). Once the Norton surface wave effects are included in the… CONTINUE READING
