"An analytical solution is developed to the two-dimensional scattering problem of a plane-wave propagating in air, impinging on the interface with a dissipative soil, and interacting with a finite set of subsurface metallic targets. The Cylindrical Wave Approach is applied, the electromagnetic field scattered by the targets is expanded into cylindrical waves and use is made of the plane-wave spectrum to take into account the interaction of such waves with the planar interface between air and soil. The theoretical solution is implemented in a Fortran code. The numerical evaluation of the spectral integral relevant to reflected and transmitted cylindrical wave functions in the presence of lossy media is performed by means of Gaussian adaptive quadrature formulas. The method may return the field values in each point of the space, both in the near and far zones; moreover it may be applied for any polarization, and for arbitrary values of the cylinder sizes and positions."
