The Meteorological and Hydrological Service of Croatia has performed measurements of UV-B radiation with narrowband instruments in Opatija and Umag. The analysed five-year series of data...
The high biological impact of ultraviolet radiation has boosted research in UV radiation and ozone. THESEO is one of the biggest experiment to date being run in Europe, and its main goal is to investigate ozone decrease above urban areas. In Croatia, nowadays, there are only a few instruments for measuring surface ozone amounts and only two instrum...
Knowledge of the solar energy amount at the Earth surface is very important for different purposes especially for all living systems on the Earth. Meteorological and Hydrological Service of Croatia (MHSC) has been modernizing and improving solar radiation measurements in the last four years with the main aim to assure forehand, useful data. Traceab...
