K-distribution plays a significant role in describing the statistics of the electromagnetic scattering. The influence of shape factor on the K-distribution is very significant because different shape factors in K-distributed sea clutter represent different actual scenarios. In this paper, we investigate the impact of different shape factors in the K-distributed sea clutter and provide the statistics of the Stokes parameters in electromagnetic scattering of the K-distribution under different shape factors.
