In this thesis a clutter voltage model for scattering from the sea surface is developed. A model for the scattering from a whitecap and a wave breaking occurrence model re combined to simulate the back scattered signal from one radar resolution cell. The simulation performed obtained the probability density function of sea clutter under different assumptions of wind velocities and wave breaking conditions. This model incorporates some measured quantities such as the mean clutter voltage and the correlation time as parameters. The probability density function depends on the parameters of this model. The obtained probability density functions do not confirm to any familiar simple density function.
