Abstract : The use of infrared radiometric apparatus to measure the surface water temperature of seas and oceans is seeing increased use at the present time in the Soviet Union and abroad. Its installation aboard aircraft allows data to be collected from large areas in a short period of time. It is extremely important that the measurement errors be as small as possible. The errors in measurement may be divided into static and dynamic varieties. Static errors include those involving errors in the apparatus itself and those which are caused by the effect of the atmosphere on the measurement results; dynamic errors are encountered in connection with averaging the water surface temperature due to the finite dimensions of the field of vision of the apparatus and its inertia.
