Abstract

The South-West Development Region is exposed to several climatic hazards with major impact upon the environment. The paper emphasizes the occurrence and the amplitude of the hazard phenomena characteristic of the warm semester of the year within the study area based on processed annual, monthly and daily extreme climatic values (temperature, precipitations, wind, dangerous atmospheric phenomena) from all the meteorological stations involved (1961-2007) in order to establish the main vulnerability classes (mixed, very high, high, medium and low). On the basis of this survey a climatic hazard map was realized in order to emphases the main threats of these hazardous phenomena (heat waves and positive thermal singularities, dryness and drought, heavy rainfall, thunderstorms, hail storms, strong winds, acid deposits and fog) to the environment. Thus, certain areas have been identified with different vulnerability classes: mixed, high and very high, medium and low to the above mentioned climatic hazards.
