The paper evaluates the effects of Atmospheric Phase Screen on focused Geosynchronous SAR data. We derive theoretical models for the resolution, the interferometric de-correlation and the induced clutter in presence of an APS, whose joint time and space power spectrum is modeled as an extension of the Kolmogorov power law. Finally we provide some statistics gathered from a GB RADAR experiment.
