On April 9, 1994, the Clementine spacecraft high-gain antenna was aimed toward the Moon's surface, and the resulting 13-cm wavelength radio echoes were received on Earth. Using these data, we have found that the lunar surface generally follows a Lambertian bistatic scattering function σ0 = KD cosθi cosθs with KD∼0.003 for the opposite (expected) sense of circular polarization and KD∼0.001 for the same (unexpected) sense. But there are important deviations (of up to 50% in some parts of the echo… CONTINUE READING
