Scattering from rough surfaces is studied using a perturbative treatment of the Ewald-Oseen extinction theorem. Expressions for the first and second order fields in the roughness parameter are presented for arbitrary incident fields and used for the calculation of scattering and extinction cross sections. The cross sections are shown to have contributions from diffuse scattering as well as from surface polariton emission and include the hitherto studied effects such as Smith-Purcell radiation, Wood anomalies and reflectance drops at rough surfaces.
