Results of a statistical analysis of monthly average of the values of air effective temperature on Missenard (ET) in Batumi from 1956 to 2015 are presented. The intra-annual distribution of ET values in three time periods was studied: 1956-1985, 1956-2015, 1986-2015; their repetition of occurrence by ET categories in the specified time periods was obtained, etc. The influence of climate change on ET values was revealed.
In particular, it is shown that in 1986-2015, compared with 1956-1985, the repetition of ET values for the category “Very cold” decreased from 1.7% to 1.1%, “Cold” - decreased from 23.9% to 22.8%, “Cool” - increased from 35.0% to 35.8%, " Comfortable " - decreased from 22.2% to 17.8%, " Warm " - increased from 12.5% to 13.9%, “Hot" - increased from 4.7% to 8.6%.
The results of the study can find practical application for planning the development of the resort and tourism industry in Adjara, taking into account climate change.
