The present resources of moisture in the south slope of Greater Caucasus have been studied according to daily data of 6 hydrometeorological stations during 1961-2000. The regional peculiarities of long-term dynamics of agroclimatic indices of these resources were revealed. For this purpose was analyzed the changes of sums of precipitations within the period between transitions of average daily air temperature through 5ºC in spring and autumn (∑ Rt0>5), amount of annual precipitations (∑ Ril), coefficient of moistening D.I.Shashko (Md) during the long-term interval of time, and calculated some static indices of them during long-term time lines.
