Within the scope of the previously proposed approach to the analysis of the errors in determining the temperature of the ocean surface based on the use of statistical data on the variability of the atmosphere, the role of the ocean surface distinction with respect to an absolutely black emitter is investigated. An account of this factor in a radiation model results in an increase of the errors and an emergence of a minimum in their viewing–angle dependences. The efficiencies of the two– and three–angle measurements are compared.
