Book: Radar Propagation and Scattering in a Complex Maritime Environment: Modeling and Simulation from MatLab

This book focuses on the modeling of radar electromagnetic wave propagation and scattering in complex maritime environments. The book is intended for graduate students and engineers as well as for researchers who encounter such problems.

Together with the relevant MatLab® codes, which are also provided, this book contains five chapters. The first chapter presents fast algorithms, based on the Method of Moments (MoM), to calculate the scattering from one-dimensional rough surfaces. Chapter 2 addresses asymptotic scattering models and their validation from the rigorous methods developed in Chapter 1. The final three chapters focus on three main applications: airborne and low-grazing angle SHF (typically from 1 to 20 GHz) propagation from sea surfaces, and HF (typically from 1 to 30 MHz) propagation above the Earth.

The interest of this book is that it investigates both of the derivations of the asymptotic formulations and compares them with fast rigorous methods, based on the MoM, to access their validity domain.

**All the MatLab codes used to make the figures are provided.**
