THE MINING RISKS AND THE LANDSCAPE IMPACT ON THE REGIONAL SYSTEM OF THE APUSENI MOUNTAINS
GABRIELA-ALINA MUREȘAN, V. GLIGOR
ABSTRACT. - The mining risks and the landscape impact on the regional system of the Apuseni Mountains. A region can be considered to be critical, when inside of it can occur or it is likely to manifest imminent risk factors (natural or anthropogenic), possibly triggering some risk phenomena that may have negative consequences and can disturb the functionality and the dynamic equilibrium state of the territorial system, the Apuseni Mountains can be included within such a category, that is the critical regions. In the Apuseni Mountains regional system, act or have acted (with obvious traces present) a number of risk factors that have left their mark on the geographical landscape and especially on its functionality, jeopardizing the viability of the territorial system itself and its future development. These factors are either natural or anthropogenic and their effects will be analyzed further, identifying risk phenomena that they cause and the landscape impact.
Key words: mining landscape, critical region, quarry, heap of debris, ponds,Apuseni Mountains.
