Coherence in multiple scattering is important as it applies to imaging and detection of object in multiple scattering environments. These phenomena may also be used to investigate images of objects obscured by them. The scattering observations using very rough surfaces can provide useful insight into their statistic as they lie outside the range of validity of the standard theories. Recently, there has been growing interest in the phenomenon of backscattering enhancement in the reflection of electromagnetic waves of mm wave range from both atmospheric hydrometeors (rain, snow and precipitation) as well as very rough surfaces (including that of sea and terrain sea). Strong backscattering enhancement of mm waves incident at different incident angles, both in the TE and TM polarizations, was observed experimentally. In the paper a short description of specific techniques used for treating image processing of strongly irregular media is shortly presented. An emphasis is placed on the phenomena of interest in advanced polarimetric radar especially in mm wave range.
