Paper Abstract

The averaged maps of the low, high and total cloudiness over North-East Asia region (80°-170°E., 40°-80°N.) are obtained from NOAA satellites data for 1997-2004. The cloudiness maps for 1997-1998 and 2000-2002 respective to minimum and maximum of activity of 23rd solar cycle are analyzed. The behavior of the large-scale cloudiness (about hundreds kilometers) is related with geographical location and orography of region and defined by trajectories of dominant cyclones. On a growth phase of solar activity the more appreciable variations of high cloudy cover are observed in latitudinal range 45°-70° than to the south and to the north. At range 55°-70° the cloudiness increases on 5%, while at 45°-55° the cloudiness decreases on 5 %. The picture of change of the low cloudiness has other character: cloudiness to the north from 50-th parallel during maximum of solar activity is above than in a minimum, but to the south the opposite picture is observed. The latitudinal displacement of cloudiness is explained by displacement of ways of the western cyclones depending on solar activity.
