Paper Abstract

The original methods of an objective classification of the meteorological objects and an applied climatic zoning of the Siberian region according to the total and lower cloudiness conditions were considered. The methods are based on the procedure of cluster analysis with the use as the informative signs the average seasonal values of the total and lower cloudiness amount and the frequencies for five gradations 0, 1-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10 balls as well as the characteristics of their correlation and the specific similarity criteria as a measure of homogeneity signs. The climatic zoning of the Siberian region territory was realized by the 44-years (1969-2012) observations of 60 meteorological stations and on the base of the original methods. 18 homogeneous cloud regions for winter, 17 for spring, 13 for summer and 14 for autumn were revealed in the result of this zoning. The local cloud atmosphere models were built for each identified region. The models include the pattern average seasonal values of the total and lower cloudiness amount as well as their frequencies for five cloud gradations.
