The polarization-interference method for direct measurements of the spread in the polarization azimuths of the object field for the rough surface is considered. Interrelation between statistical second-order polarization moment and the spread in the inclination angles of microirregularities on the rough surface was derived in the approximation of the phase-chaotic screen. Satisfactory agreement was obtained between the results of analytical simulation and the experimental data.
