SPATIAL DIFFERENTIATION OF FLOW IN APUSENI MOUNTAINS
G. PANDI, Melinda VIGH
ABSTRACT. Spatial differentiation of flow in Apuseni Mountains. Apuseni Mountains – through the Vlădeasa-Bihor-Metaliferi alignment – represents a barrier against the western air masses circulation. This determines strong differentiations in river flow. This phenomenon is recorded by 48 hydrometric stations, with 19 on the western slopes and 28 on the eastern slopes for the period 1950 – 1994. The basins correlations between discharge and altitude are logarithmic. They express the spatial flow differentiations between the two slopes or between different hydrographic basins.
Keywords. Flow, altitude, western circulation, logarithmic function, deviation
