Global positioning system (GPS) signals reflected from the ocean surface can be used for various remote sensing purposes. In this paper, we develop a facet model to simulate the received GPS single from a 2-D largescale sea surface. In this model, the sea surface is envisaged as a two-scale profile on which the long waves are locally approximated by planar facets. The microscopic profile within a facet is assumed to be represented by a set of sinusoidal ripple patches. The complex reflective function of each modified facet is evaluated by a modified formula of the original Bass and Fuks’ two-scale model, in which the phase factor of each facet is with the capillary wave modification. The scattering field and the bistatic scattering coefficient of facet model is derived in detail. With received GPS single, we give a detail analysis of the polarization property, the scattering property of GPS scattering signal over the sea surface.
