Systemic global environmental changes are manifested in the whole Earth system and represent the global effects of anthropogenic activity on the environment. Global climate changes are included in these global environmental changes. The combined effects of climate change, extreme weather and human alterations of the environment are especially pronounced in the coastal zone where people and ecosystem goods and services are most concentrated and inputs of energy and matter from land, sea and air converge. These realities call for a more systemic and adaptive approach to resource management, environmental protection, coastal zone management, coastal engineering, an approach that considers the effects both of human activities and natural variability change in an ecosystem context. Implementing such an approach requires the capability to routinely and rapidly detect and predict changes in the state of the coastal environment. Identifying variations in hydrothermal Romanian Black Sea coastal area will be based on data about temperature, rainfall and potential evapotranspiration. Period considered is 1999-2008, and coastal stations Sulina, Constanta and Mangalia are analysed. Data used have hydrothermal character and provide information on water demand of the atmosphere, depending on the size of the temperature factor. Temporal variability of hydrothermal factors is presented with some statistical parameters. They are linked as indicators of central tendency and dispersion measurement. A model for estimating the distribution of intra-annual values for hydrothermal factors is proposed for the period analysed. Source
