ground clutter

Radar echoes from trees, buildings, or other objects on the ground.

Such echoes may be caused by the reflection of energy back to the radar in the main lobe or sidelobes of the antenna pattern and, in weather radar applications, interfere with the meteorological echoes at the same range.
