We study the effects on the scaling properties of self-affine fractal surfaces due to domains where a distribution of domain sizes and shapes is simulated through a Gaussian function. Approximate expressions for the roughness spectrum and surface width are confirmed with comparison to surface-width data acquired by means of scanning tunneling microscopy.
