ABSTRACT

The interpretation of meteorological data recorded at weather station of Timisoara during 1961-2015 revealed that the global warming is a phenomenon which affects Western Romania. Results show that the annual average temperatures from the last years (2011-2015) is 1.52°C higher than the multiannual average of annual mean temperatures in the analyzed period (1961-2015). The number and frequency of canicular days has increased. The number of days without rainfalls also increased, which often totally lacks in canicular periods. The association of long periods of drought with high temperatures has harmful effects on metabolism, on normal growing and development of plants.

Keywords: climate, warming process, drought, heat, south-east Europe
