Using a modified image surface potential energy barrier model we have calculated intensity profiles for Cu(001) and Ni(001) which show surface barrier resonance features. These features correlate well with experimental features suggesting that the modified image barrier is an appropriate one-dimensional phenomenological model for the real surface potential energy barrier. From the available experimental data the two parameters in the model locating the origin with respect to the top row of atoms at the surface and the height of the barrier are determined for each surface.
