INTENSITY OF HAILSTORM IN KAKHETI REGION IN GEORGIA
Published: 1 Nov 2023
Abstract: Kakheti region is one of the hail risk regions in Georgia. It is particularly noteworthy that Kakheti is famous for its agricultural crops, vineyards, gardens, annual and perennial crops. In the warm period of the year, there are frequent hailstorms, which destroy the crops and thus cause great damage to both the region and the country's economy. In many cases, the intensity of hail determines the amount of damage - the greater the intensity, the greater the damage. The purpose of the study is to determine the intensity of hail for the Kakheti region, which is the subject of our special interest, since intense hail damages this region the most. Average and maximum intensities of hail were estimated based on available data. Areas of intense hail were defined according to different intensities. Tables of average and maximum intensity of hail and corresponding geo- informational maps were compiled. The research was carried out according to the data of 10 meteorological stations in the Kakheti region, which includes both the last century (1983-1991) and 2014-2018 data on hail. The obtained results will contribute to the planning and implementation of anti-hail works in the Kakheti region.
