The main objective for this study is the systematic collection of basic data on stable isotope content of precipitation fallen in Raureni-Valcea area, to determine temporal variations of environmental isotopes in precipitation and, consequently, to provide basic isotope data in hydrological investigations of local climate changes and to see how Bistrita (the water source from population who lives in Raureni-Valcea) river isotopic fingerprint is influenced.
