Physics of bottom scattering and some applications
The main bottom scattering theories are described in their bistatic formulation: composite-roughness, and volume scattering. Several applications are proposed. One of the main concerns is to check the mono- and bisfafic Lambert rule: it is shown to which extent the models can bring some improvement. Another concern is the use of the expressions of the complex scattered pressure for statistical simulation and analysis purposes.
