The paper introduces system-oriented definitions of transboundary environmental dangers and threats of economic activities in border areas. The morphology of trans-border hazardous phenomena generated by economic activities in border areas are developed first, and the dangerous effects on objects in the environment of neighboring countries, then and possible harmful impacts on its territory. To illustrate the models lexicological-graphical models were applied. Each of the constituent components of dangers is decomposed in order to derive the basic elements. They are assessed quantitatively by descriptors such as the probabilities of their occurrence. A system structure, allowing understanding in details the content and the dangers and the threats they causes is introduced.
