ABSTRACT
Based on the observation data of meteorological stations in Georgia, spanning the
period from 1936 to 2011 several Temperature Indices of Climate Change have been
researched. These indices are among 27 core climate change indices developed by the
World Meteorological Organization and Expert Team on Climate Change Detection,
Monitoring and Indices (ETCCDMI) of the intergovernmental commission on climate
change. Geoinformational maps of spatial structure have been built and the dynamic of the indices over the period of global warming have been studied. Average values of several Temperature indices of Climate Change for various averaging times have been
determined.
