where A denotes the amplitude and can be calculated from the classic Radar Equation as follows:
Advances served as a treasure chest of empirical relationships among reflectivity factor, attenuation, water content, and rainfall rate, and presented some novel interpretations of the radar equation, complications of Mie scattering, and multiple wavelength responses to hydrometeors.
It is apparent that the far-field model is much effective in terms of computation time than the near-field one for the fact that it has a more simple radar equation and less Green's function evaluation.
His topics include the development of the radar equation, radar equations for clutter and jamming, beamshape loss, atmospheric effects, and loss factors in the radar equation.
The book is divided into nine chapters, starting with the radar equation as a basis for all further discussions.

Taking the influence of atmosphere condition into account, the received radar sea clutter power can be obtained from radar equation [4]
The radar equation, detection, search modes and measurements are the subjects of chapters 5 to 8.
The bistatic radar equation as defined by Skolnik is:
Part I begins by presenting the basic radar equation, radar antennas and electronics, signal propagation, radar target cross sections, noise effects, target detection, the radar ambiguity function, pulse compression, radar accuracy and monopulse operation.
Radar range is defined in the classical radar equation, as shown in Skolnik's Introduction to Radar Systems:
