Summary: 
A convenient formula for the estimation of the clutter rank of the diving platform radar is derived. Brennan's rule provides a general formula to estimate the clutter rank for the side looking radar with a linear array, which is normally called one-dimensional (1D) estimation problem. With the help of the clutter wavenumber spectrum, the traditional estimation of the clutter rank is extended to the diving scenario and the estimation problem is two-dimensional (2D). The proposed rule is verified by the numerical simulations.
