30 April 2003 Simulation on grazing backscattering properties of vegetation
Author Affiliations +
In this paper, the Monte Carlo Method is applied to study the vegetation scattering and its low-grazing characteristics. Based on the Two-layer canopy scattering model, phase difference of the discrete scatterers and volume-surface scattering interaction are taken into account, the scattering coefficient is simulated by the Monte Carlo method. The numerical results are compared with the experiments and the corresponding theory, which justify the backscattering enhancement and grazing incidence characteristic properly.
