ABSTRACT
The research of geo-systems reveals similarities between these specific geographic components and socio-economic and historic heritage cultural landscapes. Geo-systems are strongly related to natural components, but they have small but relevant human (anthropic) elements. (Geo)-facets represent subcomponents of geo-systems analyzed through ecologic perspectiveThe paper provides an analysis for the evolution and spatio-temporal variation of two climatic parameters (precipitation and evapotranspiration) and one hydrological parameter (the flown water volume) over a common period of time (1970-2007) in Ialomita.

    To precisely map the changes in hydrologic response of catchments (e.g., water balance, reactivity or extremes) we need sensitive and interpretable indicators. In this study we defined nine hydrologically meaningful signature indices: five indices were sampled on the flow duration curve, four...

    Northwest China is the driest region in China and the regional climate fluctuated dramatically during the last century. Aridity index, as the ratio between potential evapotranspiration and precipitation, is a good indicator to represent regional climate character. In this study, the change and...

    Daily precipitation data from 595 stations are analyzed based on regionalization to investigate changing properties of precipitation regimes across the entire China. The results indicate that the northwestern China is characterized by increasing monthly precipitation. The abrupt increase of...

    The hydrological response of a catchment to rainfall on different time scales is result of a complex system involving a range of physical processes which may operate simultaneously and have different spatial and temporal influences. This paper presents the analysis of streamflow response of a...

    In this paper the third water balance component, the actual evapotranspiration (ETA), is analysed. Although evapotranspiration rates decrease with increasing altitude, it can be concluded that substantial quantitative differences are found among temperature and energy balance-based techniques...
