I. SĂNDULACHE, CĂTĂLINA SĂNDULACHE
ABSTRACT: Jiu Defile has a length of 33 km and is located in the Southern Carpathians, between Parāng Mountains (east) and Vālcan Mountains (west). This paper stars from the analysis of field mapping and measurements (based on topographic maps, scale of 1:25 000), and data from local institutions and other sources (web, press). In Jiu Defile, geomorphological hazards results from the combined action of meteorological conditions and other factors such as geology, geomorphology and socio-economic development. They may affect transport infrastructure, which is at risk especially in spring and summer.
Key words: Jiu Defile, geomorphological hazards, risks
