Drought from air to underground – a multiscale analysis for Different Type of Drought in Eastern Romania

Main Article Content



The results of the analysis highlight the occurrence of quite frequent meteorological droughts in the last two decades with excessive manifestations in the years 2000, 2007, 2012, 2017, 2020 and 2022. These were accompanied by sequences of hydrological and hydrogeological drought that practically complete a rather gloomy scenario regarding the decline of water resources in this region. In the wider context of regional climate scenarios, which predict an increase in air temperature and, at the same time, a decrease in atmospheric hydrological input, it is clear that increasing the frequency and duration of different types of droughts will have major implications for all natural components and anthropogenic activity in the region.
