Abstract : The factors which are responsible for errors in surface temperature and cloud temperature measurements from artificial earth satellites are considered for various spectral intervals (3.5-4.0; 8.0-12.0 microns). The radiation temperature is computed for 25 locations in the USSR during different seasons and this information is used to propose the most probable corrections to the temperature of the surface measured from meteorological satellites.
