Abstract: This paper derives a general analytical expression for the correlation coefficient of signals received by two identical spaced antennas in a radar system used to detect meteorological phenomena such as rain and clouds. Such a correlation coefficient is found as a function of the relevant physical parameters, namely, distance between antennas (baseline distance), signal bandwidth, and antenna directivity. One of the antennas transmits the signal and receives its echoes from the scatterers, characterizing a monostatic radar, whereas the other antenna only receives these echoes, characterizing a bistatic radar. Our approach can be easily extended to nonidentical antennas.
