A layer-stripping procedure was used to simultaneously recover the conductivity and permittivity profiles. It was assumed a normally incident plane wave pulse and zero noise present on the received pulse. This paper extends the technique of finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) formulation of an inverse scattering scheme for remote sensing of inhomogeneous lossy layered media to the case of a two-dimensional (2-D) layered lossy half-space impulsively excited at its surface by an infinitely long monopole.
