Abstract

The article provides an analysis of the spatiotemporal patterns in the dynamics of the main meteorological elements (air temperature and precipitation) in Crimea. Considering the significant geomorphological diversity and the peculiarities of the physiographical location of the Crimean Peninsula, ambiguous trends in the variability of climatic parameters are noted on its territory. Thus, the increase in air temperature and humidity has been recorded in the steppe and foothill areas during the recent decades. In contrast, at the Southern coast of Crimea, under the sub-Mediterranean climate conditions precipitation decreases and average annual air temperature stabilizes to the climatic norm. It is pointed out that the occurrence of spontaneous and dangerous hydrometeorological phenomena having frequented lately are due to the modern trends in the climate dynamics.
