In this research the effect of 12 climate risk factors of skin cancer and skin melanoma were studied in a population of Khabarovsk Krai using climate geographic information system by the methods of correlation and regression analysis. It was found that the incidence of skin cancer strongly correlated with the levels of total annual absorbed shortwave radiation, the absolute minimum air temperature in January, the annual radiation balance and the monthly average air temperature in January.

Regression analysis revealed a high degree of morbidity due to the complex of climatic factors, the most important of which are: the annual absorbed shortwave radiation, the absolute minimum air temperature in January, the annual radiation balance and the annual total solar radiation . At the same time, a high risk of skin melanoma associated with exposure to the population of the complex of climatic factors, among which the most significant, increase the risk of the disease are: average humidity and average monthly temperature in July, and the repeatability of a cloudy sky in July.
