CHARACTERISTICS OF FLOW IN THE LOWER CATCHMENT OF THE ARGEȘ RIVER
ABSTRACT:- The present paper investigates the flood potential of the lower catchment area of the Arges river. In order to establish the high floods characteristics the maximum monthly and yearly flow series were used, measured at 19 hydrometric stations with observation periods between 10 and 56 years. This paper shows the flood occurrence potential on a monthly and annual scale, important floods being the ones whose flow is higher than defense level (attention level equivalent flow, flood level equivalent flow, danger level equivalent flow). The characteristic elements of the high floods were investigated in order to understand the mechanisms that generate them and to prevent and mitigate the effects resulted.
Keywords: high floods, the lower catchment of the Argeș river, attention level equivalent flow, flood level equivalent flow, danger level equivalent flow.
