STUDENTS' Field work (05/2019)

On 17 May 2019 students of geophysics (Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb) visited the tide-gauge station Bakar (within the course Field work). Students were introduced to sea-level measurements performed using float-type (analog and digital) and radar instruments. After visiting Bakar, we continued to Zavižan meteorological station, the station at the highest altitude in the Republic of Croatia. The photos shown were taken by our former student Tonko Bogovac.

Technician Damir Ptičar demonstrates checks of the tide-gauge zero.
