MORPHOMETRIC AND MORPHOLOGIC CHARACTERISTICS OF DOAMNEI RIVER MOUNTAIN BASIN (FĂGĂRAŞ MOUNTAINS)

Journal Title: Current Trends in Natural Sciences - Year 2012, Vol 1, Issue 1

Abstract

This paper presents a detailed morphometric and morphographic analysis of Doamnei River mountain basin (Făgăraş Mountains), based on digital morphometric maps, field observations and surveys. The mountain basin of Doamnei River is characterized by a typical alpine, subalpine and mountainous morphology. The main morphometric and morphographic characteristics are: prevalence of high hypsometric steps that exceed 1,600m altitude (including 4 peaks over 2,500m and 18 peaks over 2,400m), high values of landform energy (400-600m, and locally over 1,000m for the areas adjacent to the glacial valleys), very high and steep slopes (predominant slopes of and over 300-500), high massiveness; well developed river network, with a characteristic river density of 2-4 km/ sq.km; slopes moderately (W, SE) and well (S, SW) exposed to solar radiation.
