Sea Normalized RCS, and Doppler spectra have been revised for HF-OTH Clutter Modelling. The Hasselmann model is firstly introduced to predict the sea directional spectrum of fetch-limited sea and results have been compared with the Pierson-Moskovitz model used for large scale ocean remote sensing. Results show that the closed fetch-limited sea has lower NRCS compared with ocean for similar wind intensity and direction. For this reasons RCS and Doppler spectra must be predicted taking into account of the fetch dimension. In future work we will generalize this interesting approach to fetch-limited wind, time-limited pulse, in order to show the waveform effect on Doppler spectrum.
