Natural hazards in Romania induced by heavy rainfalls in 1996-1997

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Romania is one of the European countries most frequently affected by natural hazards due to its position within the alpine orogenic system and against the main atmospheric pressure centres. This paper deals mainly with natural disasters cased by the variability of climatic conditions (mostly by precipitations) in the years 1996 and 1997, their temporal and spatial distributions and the way they affected human life. The mentioned period shows 2 distinct intervals : December 1996 - March 1997 (mass movements) and June - August 1997 (floods, hailstorm, strong wind, landslides, soil erosion)
