The removal of coexisting land and weather clutter signals is a common problem in many radar applications. Although the optimal method for land-weather clutter suppression is known, it is usually not amenable to implementation due to computation and storage limitations of the processor. We propose an alternative method that employs low rank approximations on weather clutter correlation matrix to obtain detectors which are feasible to implement. The performance of the proposed method is compared with the optimal detector and some other detectors used for this task to illustrate the trade-off between the improvement factor gain and the computational, storage requirements.
