Abstract
In the article the main factors: solar radiation, atmosphere’ circulation processes and relief defining the climate features of Samtskhe-Javakheti are discussed. On the basis of mentioned factor analysis, it is revealed that their impact and intensity is changed according territory and by seasons. This difference and weather particular conditions connected with it determine the climate conditions features in different places according the seasons. On the basis of these factors analysis it has become possible to divide Samtskhe-Javakheti into climate areas, for which article of Sh. Javakhishvili “Сlimatic zoning map of Georgia” and 40-year series were used. In the Samtskhe-Javakheti region the following 7 climatic areas areal located: -Moderately humid climate with cold winter and short summer (1); -Moderately dry (steppe) subtropical mountainous climate with small snow cold winter and long warm summer (2); -Moderately dry(steppe) subtropical mountainous climate with cold, small snow winter and long cool summer (3); -Mountain climate with cold winter and long summer transferred from humid maritime to humid continental one (4); -Mountain climate with cold winter and short summer transferred from humid to moderately humid one (5); -Moderately dry subtropical mountainous climate with cold, small snow winter and short summer (6);- Mountainous moderately humid climate with exception of real summer conditions (7).
