Brief Project summary:

The territory of the Danube River Basin is one the most flood-endangered regions in Europe. Therefore there is a strong need to have complete and exhausting information on the flood regime in order to be able to generalize such information on the basis of long-term observations from the whole Danube territory. Flood data from more

than 75 stations will be processed to analyse the mean daily discharge rates variability (and annual peaks Qmax as well), from the period 1901–2010 (1876–2010, and more). Further, possible relationships between the annual discharge characteristics of the Danube River and the world climate phenomena (NAO, AO, QBO) will be examined. This information can be used for water management and design of flood control structures and for improvement of the methodological base of institutions and agencies responsible for flood warnings.
