Results of temperature profile measurements at altitude range 0+600 m and total water content measurements during total (Kislovodsk, 2006; Novosibirsk, 2008) and partial (Moscow, 2011) solar eclipse by the using of microwave radiometer data presented in the report. Terrestrial consequences of solar eclipse (especially the total ones) are noticeable and important. Eclipses support unique, specific conditions which give the opportunity to numerous varied meteorological researches. The most

The ABL air temperature depends in general on the flux of solar radiation and on some features of the ground (albedo, absorptivity and emissivity) and the features of the air (mainly humidity).
