Resumo:  The generalized curvature ocean surface scattering model [general curvature model (GCM)] is extended and revisited. Two key steps are addressed in this paper, namely, a necessary sea surface spectrum undressing procedure and the inclusion of a skewness phase-related component. Normalized radar cross-section (NRCS) simulations are generated at C-band for various wind conditions, polarizations, and incidence angles. Results are compared with CMOD5.n. Although the sea surface spectrum undressing procedure is a necessary step, the overall NRCS dynamic is notably affected only in low wind conditions (<= 5 m/s). The inclusion of the skewness phase-related component makes the most impact to the NRCS dynamic where the upwind/downwind asymmetry is clearly detectable. A good agreement between the upwind/downwind asymmetry of the extended GCM and CMOD5.n is achieved for moderate winds (approximate to 5-10 m/s) and moderate incidence angles (approximate to 32 degrees -40 degrees). For low incidence angles (<26 degrees), the GCM tends to overestimate the upwind/downwind asymmetry compared with CMOD5.n.
