Current tendencies of change in the streamflow of the tributaries of the middle reach of the Dniester


We examine the theoretical and practical aspects of the current tendencies of change in the streamflow of the tributaries of the middle reach of the Dniester in conditions of an ever increasing deficit of water resources. The refined computed characteristics of the annual mean, minimum and maximum flow of the tributaries furnish insights into the current changes in hydraulicity of the rivers in the region under investigation.
