The airborne campaigns of the ALADIN Airborne Demonstrator (A2D) were successfully performed in November 2007, December 2008, and September 2009. In this paper, the sea surface return measured during the campaigns is well analyzed. The results were compared to sea surface reflectance models, including the contribution from whitecaps, specular reflection, and the subsurface volume backscattering. It is shown that the sea surface reflectance stressed by wind followed the models which take account of subsurface reflectance contribution. The validation of sea surface reflectance is necessary for the future spaceborne wind lidar-ALADIN.
