ABSTRACT

The main objective of the study is to quantify the pressure on forest areas in Romania, which are designed to stabilize sandy soils in southern Oltenia. Global climate, changes recorded, locally manifested by increases in average air temperature but also by generating strong winds and sandstorms. The forest shelterbelts established here played an important role in agricultural activities. Quantification was carried out areas cleared from a database, conducted by the University of Maryland, Department of Geographical Sciences, Forest Global Change 2000-2012. This was based on the extraction of 654178 time-series Landsat 7 ETM + satellite images. They covers the forest on a period of 13 years and by GIS and statistical processing changes from 2000 to 2012, could be easily observed. To quantify the forest surfaces, spatial join technique have been used, for each territorial administrative unit, and the newly created file containes a complex table of attributes, including column that sums all the pixels, rich in quantity information about the forest areas. Research showed significant reductions in forest areas protection, with multiplier effects on other components of the local territorial systems.

Keywords: territorial management, aridization, protection forests, ecosystem,
