ABSTRACT

Dryness and drought are two phenomena common for Timis County, especially during the critical periods for crops growth. These two phenomena are described by precipitation, temperature and relative humidity. This paper will present the results of some studies on dryness and drought for Timis County using dry period index and Pinna combinative index. For a better agricultural management, as well as for general water supply, water scarcity phenomenon (drought, dryness, aridity) in Timis County needs to be investigated in more detail adding analyzes and on evapotranspiration, water-table variation, land use etc.

Keywords: dryness, drought, water scarcity, Pinna combinative index, dry period index
