Pulse reflection from a randomly stratified medium

Part of the The IMA Volumes in Mathematics and its Applications book series (IMA, volume 31)

Abstract

Probing the earth, the ocean or the atmosphere is commonly performed by sending a pulse through the medium and then measuring the backscattered pulse as it is reflected back to the surface. The medium typically has complicated structure, so that some simplifying assumptions are usually made; for general reference on the subject see the articles in the book [1].
