In this paper, characterization of the fluctuation statistics of radar clutter using Weibull and lognormal distribution models, is presented. Both farmland and sea clutter data measured using a noncoherent, airborne S-band radar are used in the analysis. The clutter data represent the first measurements from an airborne platform over Indian terrain. The values of the distribution parameters estimated using two different techniques, have also been presented along with the different criteria used to classify the clutter.
