ABSTRACT
The analysis of the main climate elements allows the characterization of the geographical area of the Târgovişte Plain from the climatic viewpoint (located at the contact of two major physical-geographical units, the Sub-Carpathians and the plateau, the Târgovişte Plain has benefited from the natural and human resources offered by the two units, as well as by the presence of the Ialomiţa and the Dâmboviţa rivers on the margins; within the Romanian Plain, the Târgovişte Plain has a peripheral position, being bordered by the subsidence plain of Titu-Sălcuţa in the south, south-west and south-east, and by the piedmont plain of Cricovul Dulce). This analysis was made based on the data recorded at the weather station of Târgovişte (located at 228 m altitude, 44056' N latitude, 25026' E longitude) and at the weather station of Titu (125 m altitude, 45036’ latitude N, 26025’ longitude E) during the period between 1961 and 2007. The annual, seasonal and monthly values of the Standardized Precipitation Anomaly (SPA) was calculated and interpreted.
