THE EXCESSIVE HEATINGS IN THE ROMANIAN PLAIN

Abstract

The paper study the extremely hot days, with temperature ≥35°C, on the basis of daily data of the maximum air temperature in the Romanian Plain - one of the territories in Romania with the highest excessive heatings. The excessively hot situations were analyzed in detail by: calculating the total number of extremely hot days gathered year by year and extracting the periods of different durations with such successive days, calculating the frequencies for the analyzed period, identifying the maximum duration intervals of each year and outlining the trends of their evolution. The extreme intensity of the heating is described by the manifestation data both in the air and on the ground. The extraordinary magnitude of the phenomenon was also highlighted by the MODIS satellite data, which indicated maximum temperatures above 50˚C, during the day and 35˚C at night.
