In this paper we analyse the monetary policy of the National Bank of Romania during 2005-2015 by estimating the Taylor rule, on a quarterly basis. We determined the potential GDP by employing the Hodrick-Prescott filter, in order to distinguish between the cyclical and the structural components of the output. Then, we estimated the traditional Taylor rule function (with a classic OLS regression), but slightly modified, as to take into account the forward-looking attitude of the NBR. The results confirm the direct correlation between the monetary policy rate and the output gap on the one hand, and the inflation differential (inflation - inflationtarget) on the other hand. Also, the results show us that NBR paid a higher attention to the dynamics of the inflation versus its target than to the output gap. Last, but not least, the central bank has been also sensitive to the financial stability, as reflected by the results of the incorporation of the ROBOR-EURIBOR spread in the classical Taylor rule.

dynamics over time. Accordingly, Hesse, Polívka and Reicher (2018) face the question of how to approach the temporarily differentiated development dynamics of suburban spaces within a systematic, conceptual framework for analysis. The temporal variation and trajectory analysis is key to that debate. The paper focuses on the integration of the particular phases and cycles into a broader context of the suburban system and – as far as possible – describes interdependencies of trigger factors and of the local and regional frameworks. This distinguishes the approach from

The dynamics of climate elements and land drainage impact on hydrologic conditions in a lakeland blind drainage area

The assessment of climate dynamics and the impact of land drainage systems on lakeland blind drainage area was the problem studied in the paper. The research area was located based on relative stability of non-climatic physiographic characteristics and water management practices over a longer time-scale. Thus, the influence of non-climatic factors on water storage could be omitted. The study site was situated in Warmia region in the Dopływ spod Nowej Wsi catchment (27.53 km2). One of local seepage ponds called Bagna Ramuckie within the aforementioned catchment was investigated. The study covered the time period since the first half of the 19th century to the year 2005.

The decisive factors affecting processes of increase and decrease of pond water surface area in considered spatial units were the trends of air temperature over the long time scale. It was indicated that natural enlargement of water surface area in the pond occurred after 40-years long period of air temperature decrease and the decline followed 20-year-long period of air temperature rise. Precipitation did not show any trends for long periods but typical cyclic changes of precipitation over a short time-scale. These pluvial cycles stimulated or destimulated processes of water surface changes additionally over short periods. The first episode of water surface decrease in the seepage pond occurred when air temperature rise trend coincided with intensive land drainage and changes in some land management patterns (the 2nd half of the 19th century). Nevertheless, during the 20th century water management practices were rather stable and did not have any impact on rise or decline of seepage pond water surface area.
