Subcarpathians, climate conditions, anthropic activity
Document type: článok/journal
The Subcarpathians lie at the contact area between the mesophile vegetation of the Central Europe and the sylvosteppe and steppe xerophile vegetation peculiar to the Southern and central parts of Eastern Europe. The area, rich in a great variety of natural resources, has been populated from very old times and, in consequence it has been suffering deepgoing changes and many imbalances. Another reason for people .seeking to settle there is its mild climate. The paper presents some suggestive variables in support of this reality, in a representative area between Dambovita and the Prahova valleys, motivating the therapeutical availabilities of this environment which ought to be made better use of than they are at present. Here they are: insolation during the vegetation period, average, maximum and minimum annual temperatu-res, days with specific thermal features of air temperature, mean and absolute thermal amplitude of air temperature, multiannual precipitation means, maximum and minimum rainy days/year, 24-hour maxima, number of days with precipitation falls, persistance and depth of the snow layer, and finally the weather classes. The fact that the climate is moderate, relatively mild in winter and without heat excess in summer represents a healthy background for any activity and moreover helps improving one’s health condition if put to therapeutical uses.
