Download Climate of the Romanian Carpathians: Variability and Trends by Dana Magdalena Micu, Alexandru Dumitrescu, Sorin Cheval, PDF

By Dana Magdalena Micu, Alexandru Dumitrescu, Sorin Cheval, Marius-Victor Birsan

This e-book is a entire climatic monograph, which addresses some of the most advanced mountain environments in Europe, the Carpathians Chain, concentrating on the branches that lie over Romania. the amount aggregates top of the range enter info, cutting-edge thoughts, neighborhood research and assessment views, whereas addressing the spatial and temporal styles of the most climatic components. The research covers the interval 1961-2010, for the current weather, whereas the viewpoint is prolonged as much as 2050. the most climatic parts (e.g. air temperature, precipitation, wind) are analyzed, yet a few particular variables like snow intensity and snow hide also are tested, either by way of common behaviour and severe
characteristics. this can be the 1st synthesis addressing the weather of this mountain area, and it presents beneficial details for scientists, mountain stakeholders, decision-makers and normal public.

The MASH homogenization procedure is further described in Chap. 5 (Sect. 1). A total number of 35 weather stations, regularly distributed within the entire area of the Romanian Carpathians (15 located above 800 m and 20 below this elevation), were used to analyze the regional climatic patterns and interpret the present-day climate variability signals (Fig. 1). The selected sites have less than 10 % missing values over a 50-year period of observations (1961–2010) and they reflect different altitude zones and physiographic characteristics of the study region.

That Decision paved the way for the future implementation of the state-based meteorological network devised by the Climatology Department of the Meteorological Institute. The theoretical principles underlying it helped improving database quality. From 1960, a task plan for the reorganization of the state-based meteorological network was being implemented,1 recommending the selection of the most appropriate conditions for setting up weather stations and rain gauge stations throughout the country in representative spatial locations, and aligning them to the international programme of meteorological measurements.
