Abstract : The reflection coefficient of a plane monochromatic electromagnetic wave incident on an idealized laminar plane stratified jet stream is determined. This is accomplished by applying the principle of invariant imbedding to derive a differential equation for the reflection coefficient. The differential equation which is of the Riccati type is solved approximately for the case of a jet stream with a parabolic velocity profile. (Author)
