Abstract : In recent years extensive investigations have been made in Southeast Asia and the United States to improve communications-electronics performance in heavily forested environments. A careful inspection of the data from the investigations, the physical aspects of the design of the experiments, and the topological characteristics of the environment, reveals that one should not view path loss from a deterministic point of view, but rather as a stochastic realization. Four stochastic models are proposed for analysis of such data, and selected analysis is shown for the two most logical models. (Author)
