Short summary
Radar is well known for its utilization in the aeronautical and the automotive sector. Affordable systems have started conquering safety relevant applications as permanent monitoring units. New applications also entail new challenges. The paper investigates the effects of signal degrading sediments and assesses them. It is pointed out that liquid water has a particularly negative influence. In order to limit this disturbance factor, a methodology is presented to weaken its impact by up to 75 %.
