Abstract : The problems of processing of satellite radiophysical measurement and mapping of ocean surface and atmospheric characteristics in a monitoring regime are discussed. The prinicples of two-dimensional processing of multiparametric and multichannel measurements with regard to the requirements of operativeness and reliability of the monitoring system, accuracy of solution of identification and detection problems are considered. The structural solutions on organization of a real-time data processing are suggested. The importance of the development of operative methods of geophysical parameter determination in a monitoring system technology is noted. As an example of microwave radiometric data processing, we describe the computer technique used on the satellite Cosmos-1151 for measuring the atmospheric and oceanographic parameters. The estimations of accuracy of geophysical parameter determination are given.
