Abstract : Recently, interest has been manifested in using the sea return observed by an airborne radar as a possible continuous monitor of the condition of the sea surface. As a step in analytically evaluating the concept, a brief study is presented of the sea return as seen by a radar viewing the sea at near-normal incidence. (Author)
