The work presents the results of research on thermometry of cutaneous integument of biological objects, using the method of remote infrared thermography. The process of evaporation of drops of sweat during physical loading has been simulated in imitation of evaporation of drops of water. For the first time, research resulted in time dependence of the temperature of drops of water (sweat) with convective and diffuse mechanisms of a heat and mass exchange with the ambient air. Research results can be applied in experimental medicine for controlling process of athletes training.
