The comparison of droughts (distribution and intensity), determined from the meteorological satellite indices for 2007 within the territory of Ukraine, has been performed. It’s used a meteorological index — a hydrothermal coefficient by Selyanynov, created on the basis of ground data, and drought index ID (index of Drought) made on the basis of satellite data. The features of the distribution and intensity of droughts, which have been established as a result of joint analysis, have been discussed.

Keywords: climatic changes, drought, hydrothermal coefficient of Selyninova, index of drought, remote sensing of the Earth, TERRA/MODIS
