Abstract

A variable transition rate factor is proposed for the modified IEM, such that it uses a variable dielectric profile down to the radar observation depth. A theoretical observation depth model is also proposed. It is shown that radar observation depth calculated by this model agrees with values noted in literature, and that backscattering simulations using the variable transition rate factor compare well with data collected in the European Microwave Signature Laboratory (EMSL) experiments.
