This thesis is a study of the back scattering of finite tubular cylinders with circular cross-sections and very thin conducting walls. Measurements of several scaled tubular cylinders were taken and the experimental results were compared to theoretical data and to previous results, respectively. This research is part of an ongoing project to investigate the resonant scattering characteristics of targets. The results are expected to find applications in target identification.

(Cambridge Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-09);Benthic shells can contribute greatly to the scattering variability of the ocean bottom, particularly at low grazing angles. Among the effects of shell aggregates are increased scattering strength and potential subcritical ...
