A one-dimensional random rough surface is modeled as a Gaussian noise signal. The effect of shadowing in the case of backscattering of waves from such a surface is studied in the geometric optic limit by analyzing the Gaussian noise signal in a digital computer. It is found that presently accepted theories for the shadowing effect are of doubtful validity.
