In this letter, a practical mean reflectivity model of radar land clutter (LC) for the complex system design of ground-based radars involved in low-angle targets on some typical terrains is studied using the inductive reasoning method. The functional relationships between the radar parameters and radar surface clutter backscattering are analyzed. Following the recent research work in the area of reflectivity modeling of LC in the literature, the least squares method is employed to estimate the model parameters. The model is validated using reliable practical data and shown to outperform other models in accuracy.
