In the paper a possibility of the water vapor detailed profile retrieval in tropical atmosphere as a result of satellite thermal microwave radiations measurements is considered. In direct problem is analysed possibility of the recovering the water vapor profile on 8-10 high-altitude levels before height 10 km with use the resonance absorption line 183 and 325 GHz. The Decision of this problem, certainly, will in principal be important at a walk in study of the physical conditions of the genesis and evolutions tropical cyclones.
Keywords: water vapor detailed profile retrieval at atmosphere, microwave radiometry, radio brightness temperature
