Abstract. - In the first part of the paper are presented the general characteristics of the high waters and floods, emphasizing that the difference is mainly related to the flood wave characteristics (duration and form) and not the water volume. Then we present the geography of the study area and the main geographic characteristics which influence flood waves. We analyzed the monthly and seasonal frequency of flood waves highlighting the similarities and differences between the mountain and the neighboring areas, regarding the formation and development of floods. In the last part we analyzed statistically how many times did the areas hydrometric stations record values which were higher than the three threshold defense levels (attention, flood, danger).
Key words: floods, floods types, regional distribution, Transylvanian Subcarpathians
