Abstract : This work shows that in addition to doppler effect, there is considerably stronger polarization dependence of the scattered field by a moving sinusoidal surface as opposed to the stationary case. For the case of acoustic waves, a slowly moving surface contributes insignificantly to the amplitude to the reflection coefficient, but may appreciably affect its angular dependence. (Author)
