With a higher centre (1,600– 1,800 metres), their outer limits to the north in Transylvania reach only 900–1,100 metres (Gheorghiu 2001, 3). Their flattened appearance is even more evident at their western end, which extends into a large elevated platform (the Luncanilor Platform). Located at the south-western end, at the point of contact with the Hateg Depression, is a large carstic zone (Ohaba Ponor-Banita) that was formed on a base of Jurassic limestones with many caves, dolines, canyons and sub-terranean rivers (Gherasimov 1960, I, 216).

34 The Dacian heartland The current land use in the lowlands is focused on arable cultivation, though cultivated small fields can be found at high altitudes in the mountains (up to 1,000–1,400 metres in the Sureanu Mountains – Gheorghiu 2001, 3; and up to 1,200–1,300 in the Apuseni Mountains – Morariu et al. 3). The preponderance of arable land in the fertile alluvial plains, however, changes gradually towards orchards and vineyards and further on to pastures at higher altitudes. The topographic and climatic characteristics of the river valleys allow arable cultivation not only on the lower terraces, but also on the large, flat or slightly sloping higher terraces.

This further emphasises the importance of this area in terms of the emergence of settlement and continued occupation throughout the history of Transylvania. 2 Climate The climate of the region is of temperate–continental type and reflects that of Central and Eastern Europe generally. Small variations and local characteristics, such as topography, wind, rainfall, or indeed, solar radiation patterns define a number of microclimatic zones. In Romania cool and damp air from the Atlantic meets opposing dry air masses coming from the east, which are hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
