About article:

The aim of the study was the examination of the seasonality of flooding across Slovak-Polish part of the Carpathian Mountain using directional statistics. Flooding in the Carpathian Mountains has some of its most serious impacts on settlement, transportation and agriculture. Floods are generated by prolonged heavy rainfall, snowmelt or both. Processed gauging stations are located in Slovak-Polish area of the Carpathian Mountains. Together there were processed 169 stream gauging stations, specifically 41 Slovakian stations and 128 Polish gauging stations. Within the seasonality there was analyzed the whole observed period with different length of maximum annual peak-discharge series for each stream gauging station, with the length of maximum annual peak-discharge series from 34 to 88 years for Slovakian stream gauging stations and with the length of maximum annual peak-discharge series from 10 to 59 years for Polish stream gauging stations. The analysis was also processed for three, five and ten largest annual maximum discharges. Seasonality results were spatially displayed for better understanding of their causes and seasonality analysis for different decades were processed tabular for more accurate analysis of flood occurrence. The results showed that the floods in the Slovak-Polish area of the Carpathian Mountains occur mostly in the summer months of May, June and July and they may be due to convective rainfall, causing torrential rains, or by snowmelt in the High Tatras.
