Aim: The aim of this
paper is to determine quantity of the water resources according to the
landscapes in Georgia, using multifactorial analysis.
of water resources (hydro resources) potential of landscapes requires
multifactorial analysis. Their potential is determined by quantity of
influent and effluent waters during certain time periods. This study was
mainly based on multiyear hydrological data of Georgia covering 90 rivers.
Series of observations included a time scale of 40-50-years and in some cases
even 70-years. Study was based on cadastral data of 150 hydrological
investigated different and similar landscapes according to total supply of
water resources. The landscapes situated under more or less uniform
physico-geographical conditions are similar in their total supply of water
resources. Landscapes within the limits of one type or even subtype differ
according to the supply of water resources, particularly water resources
supply is maximal under these conditions.
Interpretation: Accuracy of our
results has been testified by the circumstances. We got approximately the
same total values for whole Georgia as determined by the calculations made by
different scientists using different methods.
