Problems of Exploration Level of Hydrometeorological Regime of the Northern Caucasus Territory

P. M. Lur’e and V. D. Panov

The main problems of the study of the meteorological regime, climate, hydrology, snow avalanches, mudflows, and glaciers are considered. It is demonstrated that the level of their exploration on the plain territory is sufficient on the whole, however, the mountain territories are poorly studied. The opening of new stations including the automatic ones and the organization of snow-route observations are required. It is necessary to carry out the preparation and publishing of new handbooks on the climate and surface water resources and to create the catalogs of glaciers, snow avalanches, and mudflows on the basis of the modern topographic maps and satellite images.
