The book is a monograph on the reflection or scattering of electromagnetic waves, particularly radio waves, from rough surfaces such as irregular terrain, rough layers in the troposphere, the rough surface of the sea, the rough surfaces of the moon and planets, etc. It is intended for scientists working in the fields of radio wave propagation and electromagnetic theory, but the theoretical part of the book may be equally useful for acousticians. It assumes a knowledge of mathematics and electromagnetic theory at graduate level (Physics or Electrical Engineering), though the reader can be a newcomer without background in this particular subject, as the problem is treated from its first principles and particular mathematical tools (e.g. Bessel Functions and the theory of random variables) are summarized in appendices.
