The climatic factors, generally, and the precipitation amounts recorded, especially, constitute some of the factors which condition the development and intensity of actual geomorphologic processes. One of the most employed climatic parameters for determining the land’s susceptibility to atmospheric precipitations, with real and concrete applications into the dynamic geomorphology, is the Angot factor.

The precipitations represent a crucial meteorological element in initiating, sustaining and reactivating some geomorphologic processes, acting as a modelling agent for every type of landscape. This influence can be highlighted by quantifying the values of some characteristic variables (length, frequency and intensity), as well as temporally confining individual and successive sequences, which present a certain degree of susceptibility.

The general objective of this research, through the analysis of precipitations and the Angot parameter, is to identify, on one hand, the months, seasons or years with a very high or very low susceptibility to the occurrence of bank erosion phenomena, and on the other, to examine the value variations of this parameter across the year. The purpose is to recognize a cumulative of pluviometric conditions which could contribute to inducing, in general, the modelling processes.

The study of land’s susceptibility to atmospheric precipitations was conducted within the morpho-hydrographic drainage system of Câlnău.

Nowadays, at global level, the linseed oil culture is more important economically than the linseed cultures for fiber. The world's largest linseed production is the linseed oil, followed by the culture for the consumption of seeds and for fibers. In this context, this study presents the evolution and the main trends in the production of the linseed oil for Romania in the period 2008-2017, the analysis being based on the values of specific indicators, namely the areas cultivated with linseeds and the production of the linseed oil achieved at the national level, macro-regions and development regions, both as a total and in the private sector as well. This analysis will be done in the context of the ongoing climate change also affecting Romania's territory. Analysing the results, one can notice that, although after 1990 the cultivated areas have decreased dramatically, since the integration of Romania into the EU, the linseed oil cultivated areas have started to grow. Thus, in 2017, Romania was the sixth EU linseed oil producer in the EU, with the South-East region holding a significant share of the cultivated areas.
