Some important issues that arise in applications involving the Radon transform (RT) of a stationary random field (SRF), specifically 2-D spectrum estimation (SE), are brought out. An expression for the RT of an SRF is developed based on a representation of an SRF of a given power spectrum density (PSD), valid up to second order statistics. The expression is useful in relating the autocorrelation function (ACF) of the RT with the RT of the 2-D ACF, as well as in highlighting some properties of the RT associated with an SRF. Inherent windowing that is inevitable in practice, and some of its implications on 2-D SE using the RT are discussed.
