Main scientific achievements 1. Development of the method of calculation of the brightness’s and radiation characteristics of clear and oil covered smooth and waved sea surface; Calculation of the oil films influence on radiation balance of sea; Finding of more exact value of sea emissivity.

2. Development of the method of remote sensing of sea surface state (clear, oil covered, degree of wave) on the basic of specular point. Derivation of formula of the distribution density of sun glints on the sea surface.

3. Development of the method of determination of Sun glint location on the ocean surface by observing from the geostationary satellite on two parameters: time on Greenwich and satellite coordinate.
