For this study, the entire region is divided into eight zones of climatic commonality. After describing the general geography of Eastern Europe, the study discusses major meteorological features of the entire region. Geography and the major climatic controls for each of the eight climatic commonality zones are then described. Finally, each season is defined and discussed in considerable detail, to include typical weather, clouds, visibility, winds, precipitation, temperature, and weather hazards....Climatology, Meteorology, Weather, Geography, Eastern Europe, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Yugoslavia, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia/Herzegovenia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Macedonia, Albania, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Baltic States, Moldova, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan.
