Multilook phase difference distribution for slightly rough boundary layered ground

Abstract

The authors derive the distribution of the phase difference between two multilook scattering signals for a multilayer stack with randomly rough surfaces under a plane wave excitation. First, for infinite slightly rough surfaces described by Gaussian centred stochastic processes, the authors show that the underlying complex scattering signals follow a Gaussian joint distribution. Also, it is demonstrated that this property is within the scope of the first-order perturbation theory. Secondly, the authors use this joint probability law to derive the closed-form expression for the probability density function of the phase difference. The theoretical formula is verified by comparison with Monte-Carlo simulations.
