THE PECULIARITIES OF THE HIGH FLOODS IN THE UPPER CRASNA BASIN
OANA MOIGRADEAN, V. SOROCOVSCHI
Abstract: The present paper analyses the characteristics of the high floods on the rivers in the Upper Crasna Basin, mainly developed in the space between Meseş and Plopiş Mountains, where this extreme hydrological hazard has a quite high frequency, being an important risk for the population and the settlements in the mentioned area. In order to assess the risk induced by high floods we considered useful highlighting the factors that determine or influence the triggering and the development of high floods. The second aspect of this paper was the analysis of temporal, quantitative and dynamic parameters of high floods, which reflect the impact that this extreme hydrological hazard may generate. The assessment of the average, maximum and minimum values of these parameters was made in order to identify the most appropriate measures for the prevention and mitigation of the effects that high floods may induce (especially floods).
Key words: high floods, triggering and influencing factors, temporal, quantitative and dynamic parameters
