A model analysis of comparative effectiveness of two- and three-angle schemes for determining the temperature of the ocean surface is performed in the approximation of an absolutely black surface and a clear and aerosol-free atmosphere. The estimates were obtained using the method of local linearization of the transfer equations; this method makes it possible to take into account a priori information about the variability of the atmosphere in different regions. It is shown that the use of the three-angle scheme is justified under conditions when the errors in recording the IR radiation are reduced to ~0.01ºK.
