Paper Abstract

This paper presents analysis of space-time characteristics of the temperature regime in the troposphere of the Black Sea region. Stable variability of zero isothermlevel, natural and intensive crystallization is found: there is an increase in altitudes above the sea level; maximum elevation is characteristic for the level of natural crystallization. The results indicate a significant increase in temperature in the troposphere of the region, which is a consequence of modern climate changes. During the warm season of the year, we can expect fewer cases of precipitation in the form of small hailstones or sleet, more cases of torrential rainfalls, increase in cumulonimbus cloudiness in the region. The warmed troposphere of the Black Sea region acquires the properties of the tropical troposphere;invasion of polar air masses will lead to formation of powerful cumulonimbuscloud cover,formation of extra-large hail; prolonged and intense thunderstorms; occurrence of whirlwindsand high winds.
