Abstract


PACS number: 94.20.ws 

Purpose: Radio wave scattering by a sound pulse in the atmosphere when wind is present is investigated theoretically.

Design/methodology/approach: The asymptotic of the scattered field in the Fresnel diffraction approximation is analyzed with Gaussian directional patterns of radiating systems.

Findings: It is shown that for small angles of backscattering the field is concentrated in a bounded area moving under the exposure of transverse wind velocity.

Conclusions: Explanation of the focusing effects dependence on wind velocity is suggested.

Key words: wave scattering, wave front, “degenerate” saddle point, focusing
