Measurements of the spectrum of high-frequency radio waves scattered from the sea surface and propagated by the ionosphere show that the expected split-spectrum characteristic of scatter from the sea is preserved and suggests the possible use of high-frequency backscatter with a high-resolution receiving system to monitor varying sea state over wide areas.
