Water Resources of Georgia and
The geographic location of Georgia, its complex orographic and circulation conditions specify the diversity of its climate. Here form almost all types of climate existing on the Earth beginning from mountainous zone of Caucasus with constant snow and glacier, ending with wet subtropical climate of the Black Sea and continental dry climate of the Eastern Georgia. That is way water resources are distributed non-homogenous on the territory of Georgia. There are some regions with plenty of water resources (ground water is also abundant and generally of high quality.) and some areas which are generally characterized by arid conditions.
