The relationship between frost susceptibility of a territory and peculiarities of the terrain along with a number of other agro-environmental factors were analysed. This resulted in the development of a simulation model that allows calculating frost susceptibility at any point of the Crimean peninsula based on the data obtained from the nearest weather station.

Keywords: frost susceptibility, minimum air temperature, the average of the absolute temperature minima, mathematical model, morphometric characteristics of a terrain.
