Abstract : The report presents and discusses experimental results of short-pulse (20 and 100 nsec) X-band radar backscatter measurements from rough water surfaces. The emphasis is on airborne open-ocean conditions, but some results from very-low-angle shore-based data and 1-nanosecond radar measurements in the NRL swimming pool are also shown. The experimental data are in the form of cumulative probability distribution functions and autocorrelation functions. (Author)
