THE INFLUENCE OF THE WEATHER AND CLIMATIC CONDITIONS AND SOME HYDROLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SOMEȘ RIVER, IN THE NW PART OF ROMANIA
Authors: Adriana Muntean, Irina Smical, Eugen Nour
Abstract: This study highlights the inﬂuence of the quantity on the rainfall and air temperature recorded at the hydrographic station Ulmeni (in the Maramures County, in the N-W part of Romania), on the Someș River ﬂow rate and some general physico-chemical parameters (pH, total disolved solids and suspend ed matter). Someș River is a left tributary of the Tisa River on the Hungarian territory, and is part of the Someș-Crasna hydrographic catchment, summing 5528 km network length coded, who drains an area of 15740 km2. Interpretation of the collected data and statistical processing has demonstrated that the ﬂuctuations of the ﬂow rate of the river are closely dependent on the seasons from the considered period (2004-2012) and correlations between hydrological and chemical parameters. Because a large part of the Someș River crosses the human settlements and important agricultural areas, the study may be useful in the prediction of ﬂooding and drought risks.
Keywords: Someș, ﬂow, hydrographic basin, physico-chemical parameters, risk, Romania.
