We used a randomly corrugated hard wall model and the sudden approximation to analyze two experiments on atom scattering from disordered surfaces. In one, the structural surface disorder was caused by ion bombardment. In the other, the disorder was due to an incomplete overlayer of adsorbed atoms. We also present a study of the scattering of a rigid rotor by a randomly corrugated hard wall using the sudden approximation.
