This paper covers the second part of the analysis of data recorded by the surface wave (SW) over-the-horizon (OTH) WEllen RAdar (WERA). Data were collected by two WERA systems, on May 13th 2008, during the NURC experiment in the Bay of Brest, France. The principal aim of this work is to provide an accurate characterization of the spectral components of the received signal. Secondly, this information is exploited in order to provide a simple and reliable spectral modeling tool. For this reason, auto-regressive (AR) models, also known as linear prediction (LP) models have been investigated. Our results show that at long distances, when the clutter-to-noise power ratio (CNR) is small, the main components of the spectrum can be reasonably described by an AR(12) model, with a good compromise between accuracy and simplicity. As the CNR increases higher-orders are instead to be preferred.
