Abstract

We analyze how low-level stratiform (Sc, St, Ns) clouds influence long-term changes in the surface air temperature in Siberia using the results of zoning of its territory according to cloud regime. It was shown that during all seasons in the last 45-year period (from 1969 to 2013), the low-level stratiform cloud amount has a poorly defined increase, accompanied by rather marked rising of surface air temperature, especially in polar regions.
