The recently formulated stochastic geometrical theory of diffraction is here applied to reflection, transmission, and diffraction of the high-frequency two-point coherence function when interfaces or scatterers are embedded in a randomly fluctuating medium with inhomogeneous background. This extends the previous solutions for a homogeneous background.
