Abstract. The impact of changes in temperature and salinity of the surface layer of the ocean on the accuracy of the definition of near-water wind speed is analyzed. It is shown that errors appear with temperature changes when remote  sensing sea surface occurs in millimeter range of radio waves. At longer length of radio waves this effect can be ignored. Typical salinity changes, observed in natural conditions, almost don’t  effect on accuracy of the definition of wind speed.

Keywords: sea surface, remote sensing, wind speed, temperature, salinity.
