The power of the echo-signal in pulsed sensing of the sea surface partially covered with foam through the atmosphere is studied. Analytical expressions are derived for the average received power and for the echo-pulse delay and width in slant sensing of the sea surface through both the optically transparent and dense aerosol atmospheres. It is shown that the presence of foam on the sea surface significantly distorts the shape of the received echo-signal.
