Estimation of Environmental Quality Based on Ecometric Climatic Indicators (on the Example of the Republic of Moldova)

Gh. Duca / Maria Nedealcov / Violeta Ivanov
Published Online: 2018-06-22 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/pesd-2018-0012


Aridity in new climatic conditions requires indexes which could adequately explain this process. All the more so, the quantities of atmospheric precipitations also continue to increase on the background of the temperatures increase in the conditions of the Republic of Moldova. Their variable character in the last period of time with the installation of dry and droughty periods alternating with rainy flood-provoking periods determines the selection of the most optimal ecometric indexes that could correctly explain the occurrence of pronounced desertification in the last period of time.

Keywords: Ecometric climatic indicators; environmental quality; dry and droughty periods; potential evapotranspiration
