Summary/Abstract: Atmospheric circulation types represent a substantial issue in weather forecasting, and therefore in meteorological and climatological research. For this paper were considered two classification methods for the atmospheric circulation types: a subjective one (HBGWL/HBGWT) and an objective one (GWT). Both of them are available in COST733 online database, for five years (1997-2001), over Romania. Based on these materials, it also has been made a consideration for the weather types they generated on land. The main results consist in the differences identified between the two classification methods in terms of frequency and synoptic structure as well as the weather types generated at ground level by each circulation type.
