We present the experience gained in determining quantitative characteristics of the hydrometeorological phenomena in the atmosphere-ocean-land system with the use of the radar information from the satellites of the «Cosmos-1500», «Okean», «Sich-1» types.
Keywords: atmosphere-ocean-land system, remote sensing of the Earth, satellites
