Jastrebarsko, March 23, 2015
Agrometeorology for the youth: “The Agrometeorological Mosaic” at the Cultural Centre of Jastrebarsko

On the occasion of World Water Day, which is originally celebrated on March 22, at the Cultural Centre of Jastrebarsko on March 23, 2015 an invited lecture by Water Jastrebarsko was held on the topic Where does drinking water come from on the Earth, and how it returns from the atmosphere back to the ground with the help of hydrometeorological phenomena. The lecture, which was held by Petra Sviličić from the Meteorological and Hydrological Service and HAgMD, was attended by approximately 70 pupils of the Jastrebarsko High School.

As World Meteorological Day was at the day of the lecture, pupils were primarily informed with the concept of meteorology and how to become a meteorologist. Afterwards followed topics such as the amount of fresh water on Earth, the circulation of water on Earth, the impact of humans on the drinking water, and a description of hydrological and meteorological phenomena through which water is returned from the atmosphere to the ground.

Participants expressed their satisfaction with the lecture and went with a message about the importance of water for us and future generations, because the pure water is a precondition to a healthy environment.
