ground target

Any radar target on the ground.

Such targets include buildings, mountains, hills, trees or shrubs, and automobiles, which may be detected in the main lobe or sidelobes of the antenna and may produce coherent or incoherent echoes that can interfere with the detection or quantitative measurement of weather echoes.
See ground clutter.
