ABSTRACT. –The Influence of climatic factors upon the flash-floods occuring in the superior basin of the river Mureş . The floods triggering factors in the upper river basin of the Mures are likely climatic in which case the analysis is based upon a string of data representative for the period 1986-2010, for eight stations and making reference to average rainfall,
maximum rainfall within 24 hours, the thickness and duration of snow.The floods in the upper basin of the Mureş do not cause major damage, except in exceptional cases. Most localities that have reported damage caused by floods are located near the Topliţa-Deda gorge, an area that influences flow concentration through a relatively narrow territory compared to the upstream territory where the Mureş river gathers its tributaries.
Key words: the influence of precipitation upon the formation of flash-floods
