THE ROLE OF HYDROLOGICAL CONDITIONS IN SPACE ORGANIZATION IN TRANSYLVANIA DEPRESSION
Abstract. The role of hydrological conditions in space organization in Transylvania Depression. The Transylvanian Depression, the most extensive inter-Carpathian area in Romania, presents numerous features in the space organization induced by natural and anthropogenic factors, of which the hydrological ones have an important role. The analysis of the water-induced particularities was based on the data obtained from the discharge data processing from 61 hydrometric stations and on the elaboration of the specific average flow map, as well as the knowledge of the quantitative and qualitative particularities of the main lacustrine units. By analyzing the processes of water flow and water storage, the role of the water factor in distinguishing the organization of the space both horizontally and vertically was emphasized. Thus there are obvious contrasts between both the marginal depressions and the plateau, as well as between the valley corridors and the interfluvial spaces within the plateau.
Key-words: space, organization, hydric factor, Transylvania Depression
