The aim of the research was the comparison of selected geomorphometric parameters for the Earth morphoclimatic zones, which are classified differently by various authors. An attempt was made to assess the classification of the zones by Büdel [3], Tricart, Cailleux [11] and Poser, Hagedorn [9]. Selected primary and secondary parameters were calculated on the basis of SRTM V4. In the next step of the study the zones were also compared to the Köppen-Geiger climate classification map [10]
