Abstract
Scatterometer data can be analyzed to obtain the normalized backscatter coeffici ent, sigma o, a variable much used in radar theory to express the scattering pro perties of terrain. In this document the equations which are required to analyze CW scatterometer data are developed. Errors in the computed values for sigma o are investigated as functions of imperfections arising in practical scatteromete r systems. Also when computing sigma o it is necessary to know certain system ch aracteristics precisely. Measurements of these characteristics for the Ryan mode l 720 system are presented.
