A surface scattering model based on the integral equation method is examined in terms of its applicability to laboratory measurements. The Fresnel reflection coefficients used in the model have been approximated as a function of the incident angle at low frequency and a function of the specular angle at high frequency. Based on a limited set of experimental measurements, a transition function are suggested for estimating the Fresnel reflection coefficients in the intermediate regions. Results of comparison indicate that the IEM is accurate and practical to use. Issue raised from dielectric information is also addressed.
