Abstract

The resolution in height of a radar pulse is of interest in connection with the observation and interpretation of horizontally stratified echoes, and also in the comparison of values of echo intensity measured at different ranges and elevation angles.

An analysis is made of the ability of a radar pulse to resolve, either completely or partially, the echoes from two closely-spaced horizontal reflecting layers situated close to the radar. The general expressions obtained are illustrated graphically.
