The study focuses on specific geomorphic, climatic and hydrological factors influencing the channel and interfluve dynamics in 4 main watersheds : Vedea (including its tributary Teleorman River), Călmăţui, Neajlov and Mostiştea. Each factor is analyzed in order to identify the threshold values for the occurrence of the geomorphological and hydrological processes that negatively impact the environment and society. At the same time, based on certain specific parameters of the 3 discussed factors, the AA. have accomplished a multi-criteria analysis that highlights the vulnerability to hydrogeomorphological processes of the investigated watersheds. The basic methods are the analytical and synthetic ones, based on graphical and cartographical models. The AA. could mention the use of graphical and cartographical data representation.
