Water temperatures of the Danube and Tisza Rivers in Hungary

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Based on a 60-year long hydrological observation series from the Hungarian Hydrological Service (between 1951 and 2010), the monthly mean water temperatures of both largest rivers in the Carpathian Basin, the Danube and the Tisza were studied in the paper. The monthly extremes in water temperatures were explained by the different climatic conditions in the drainage basins of the rivers : the Danube basin upstream its entrance to Hungarian territory with a marked Atlantic and the Tisza basin with a strong continental character. Changes were followed along the Hungarian stream sections. Trends in water temperature change were established and interpretations were sought with consideration to the climate change trends predicted by climatologists for Hungary. - (AM)
