Abstract

In this paper we report the results of a study regarding the backscattering from wind-roughened water surfaces. The reference profile data has been deducted by an experiment held at the University of Heidelberg circular wave tank facility. The scattering theory is based on a fractal description of the surface and a combined use of the Kirchhoff approximation and the small perturbation method (SPM). The scattering results are tested versus the ones obtained via the periodic-surface moment method. The study shows the reliability of the novel approach.
