The three main hypotheses of the Muschinski model are that 1) the LES subfilter turbulence obeys Kolmogorov scaling (inertial subrange) at the Bragg scale, 2) the contributions of the phases of the LES grid points to the scattering integral are statistically independent, and 3) the radar cell contains a large number of LES points to ensure sufficiently sampled statistics.
where x is the range from the radar transmitter, Pt denotes the transmitter power, G is the antenna gain, [lambda] represents the wavelength, [A.sub.c] is the radar cell area, and F is the pattern propagation factor.
