Agrometeorological seminar at the University of Split

At the invitation of Assoc. Prof. Jadranka Šepić, Dr. Višnja Vučetić held a lecture to students and professors entitled "Climate change, agriculture and forest fires in the Adriatic" as part of the Environmental Physics Seminar of the Physics Department of the Faculty of Science, University of Split on April 12, 2022. Students and professors from the University of Rijeka and Zagreb joined online.

At the Seminar, she pointed out that increasing drought stress and shortening the fruit ripening period are the main limiting factors of agricultural production today. Therefore, increasingly longer dry periods and greater threat from heat stress warn farmers about the necessity of irrigation in plantations in order to mitigate the consequences of extreme weather conditions. For the last 30 years, such weather conditions have increased the risk of wildfires in the summer, which spread from Dalmatia towards the northern Adriatic and into the interior of Croatia. Lika and the eastern Slavonia are increasingly threatened by wildfires, as shown by climate projections into the future.
