ABSTRACT

The coastal area of the Black Sea of Georgia (Kolkheti Lowland) with its recreational, resort, transport and industrial functions is a very important region in the country. A coastline is formed under the interaction of two environments, the land and the sea with
its stability much dependent on the volume and grain size of the coast-forming material drifted to the coastline by the rivers of the Black Sea basin. 90% of the coastal formations of Georgia belong to an accumulative type with their genesis and filled with
the alluvium of big rivers (e.g. Enguri, Rioni). This problem is particularly topical today, if considering that the dynamics of the river flows, including that of the solid alluvium will have a different reaction on the background of the global warming. Thus, the study of the hydrological regime of the rivers of Kolkheti Lowland and dynamics of
the load discharge and evaluation of the modern state of anthropogenic impact on it is very important.

Keywords: load discharge, warming cycle, hydrological regime, coastline.
