RAINFALL IN THE SUHARD MOUNTAINS FROM BUCOVINA

Ioan GONTARIU, Ion TĂNASĂ, Amelia BUCULEI

Abstract

In the study of the rainfall from Suhard Mountain, we used data from meteorological stations and rainfall stations situated in the immediate vicinity, which ensured a relatively satisfactory interpretation of this parameter. The altitude difference registered in Suhard, 1262 m (between the 670m, at the confluence of Maria River with Someşul Mare and 1932 m of Omu Peak), generates a remarkable spatial variation of rainfall. As a true reflection of the local geographical conditions, the rainfall quantities graphs don’t describe anymore a proportional linear increase with the altitude, but mildly resembling a parable. The type of precipitations which characterizes especially the cold season increases in days proportionally with the altitude. The consequence, besides a large amount of solid water, is also noticeable in the termic regime.
