A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF HISTORICAL FLOOD EVENTS (POST-1990) IN THE TREBEŞ-NEGEL REPRESENTATIVE BASIN FOR EASTERN CARPATHIANS AND SUBCARPATHIANS TRANSITION ZONE, Carpathian Journal of Earth and Environmental Sciences, February 2021, Vol. 16, No. 1, p. 31 – 46; Doi:10.26471/cjees/2021/016/153
The European Network of Experimental and Representative Basins (ENERB) is the results of several experimental projects concerning the hydrological forecasting and flood mitigation effort which have been implemented within states member of European Union. In Romania, the hydrometric activity for ENERB it is currently composed of 14 representative basins (RB) of which the Trebeş-Negel (184 km2) was selected as RB for Eastern Carpathian and Subcarpathian transition zone. Located in one of the most affected territories by hydrological hazards, the Trebeş-Negel RB reacted as a small-scale flood sensor for the entire region. Using the well-documented discharge and pluviometric database collected at five gauge stations within the study area, we develop the first comparative analysis of historical flood events that occurred in the Trebeş-Negel RB post-1990. Five exceptional floods were selected: flood events from July 2 to July 8, 1991; flood events from June 16 to June 22, 1992; flood events from July 11 to July 14, 2005; flood events from July 26 to July 31, 2010; and flood events from June 28 to July 1, 2018. All flood events envisaged were caused by heavy rains, when significant amounts of precipitations were recorded which sometimes exceeded 100 mm/day.
