Abstract:

The temperature lapse rate and the average temperature of the water skinlayer are proposed to be estimated by means of the remote two– or three–band detection of its IR radiation. The proposed methods of data processing being effective for airborne and satellite measurements imply rather simple calibration. The required measurement accuracy is calculated to provide the given accuracy of the ocean parameters estimation.
