Split students in Hvar

After several attempts to reach an agreement with Assoc. Prof. Jadranka Šepić, students from the Environmental Physics at the Department of Physics of the Faculty of Science, University of Split, visited the Main Meteorological Station of Hvar (GMP Hvar) of the Croatian Meteorological and Hydrological Service (DHMZ) and the Hvar Observatory of the Geodetic Faculty, University of Zagreb, on October 19, 2022. The head of the station Marijo Bratanić and the observer Luka Vučetić welcomed them to GMP Hvar and introduced them in detail to the operation of the station. The meteorological station is located in the remains of the bell tower of the former Veneranda monastery from the 16th century and was founded by Grgur Bučić on March 1, 1858. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) included GMP Hvar in the list of world centennial stations in 2018.

Marko Vučetić referred them to interesting historical facts from Hvar's rich meteorology, and Višnja Vučetić presented them with the main climatic characteristics and observed climate changes of Hvar. In the end, we handed them the Agroclimatic Atlas of Croatia in the period 1991-2020. on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the agrometeorological service in DHMZ, and distributed the comic "Fire is no joke" of the Croatian Agrometeorological Society to the students. As a sign of gratitude, they donated promotional material and a picture book "Sea Story from Rusulica Kindergarten" published by the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries in Split. Satisfied, they headed to the Hvar Observatory, specifically engaged in solar physics research since 1972. It is located on a hill above the town of Hvar in the Napoljun fortress, which was built by the French army at the beginning of the 19th century.
