The Pareto distribution for low grazing angle and high resolution X-band sea clutter

  title={The Pareto distribution for low grazing angle and high resolution X-band sea clutter},

  journal={2010 IEEE Radar Conference},
A radar pulse that impinges upon a radar resolution area of the sea surface produces backscattered returns which are called sea clutter. For low grazing angles and very fine radar cell resolution areas, the clutter intensity distribution departs significantly from the exponential distribution. In this case, the clutter is said to display spiky behavior and the distribution of the intensity develops a much longer tail relative to the exponential distribution.
