Abstract

Results of modeling of the distribution of hailstones by mean max diameter (D) on the territory of Kakheti (Georgia) using data of the freezing level in the atmosphere and radar measurements of hail max sizes in clouds are presented. Maps of the distribution of hail by the average maximum diameter in the territory of Kakheti for individual months, from April to September, have been built. The vertical distribution of D on the indicated territory in the range of heights from 0.11 to 3.84 km was studied
