FLOODS THAT APPEARED IN THE UPPER JIJIA BASIN
Summary. Floods that appeared in the upper Jijia basin. Over the years, in the upper Jijia Basin, there have been short and medium period floods and floodings generated by them, causing both material damage and human life losses, as well as environmental degradation. In this regard, the historical flood from 2010 on the Buhai River at the Pădureni hydrometric station, and on the Jijia River at the Dorohoi hydrometric station was analyzed. The average and short duration floods take place during the summer period and last a total of 2 - 6 days. These are caused by: heavy rainfall over 200-300 mm, of high intensity (due to atmospheric instability, thermal convection and formation of the retrograde cyclone above the Black Sea). They are produced on small and medium-sized water courses with areas up to 1000 km2.
Key-words: flooding, flood, retrograde cyclone, rainfall, flood risk management.
