The paper documents resonant coupling between an air pressure travelling disturbance and the Middle Adriatic coastal waters, examined theoretically by using a barotropic numerical model and then comparing the model to the observed events. The model is forced first with a cosine and box air pressure disturbance travelling with a constant speed and direction(More)
Month-to-month fluctuations in the abundance of bacteria and heterotrophic nanoflagellates (HNF) and bacterial production, as well as various chemical (nutrients, oxygen) and physical (salinity, temperature) parameters were analysed at a station located in the open middle Adriatic Sea during one decade (1997-2006). Being influenced by both coastal waters(More)
This paper investigates whether concurrent or subsequent meteotsunamis could happen at both the Balearic Islands and the Adriatic Sea as a consequence of either the simultaneous presence of the favourable synoptic pattern above both areas, or propagation of the pattern from one area to another. Meteotsunami events in sea level records from Dubrovnik (chosen(More)
A series of tsunami-like waves of non-seismic origin struck several southern European countries during the period of 23 to 27 June 2014. The event caused considerable damage from Spain to Ukraine. Here, we show that these waves were long-period ocean oscillations known as meteorological tsunamis which are generated by intense small-scale air pressure(More)
In this paper, we extract and validate high-frequency oscillations in the port of Ploče, based on sea level data from one year (March 2002-March 2003) measured at a tide gauge in the harbor. Frequency was analyzed by applying stationary (spectral) and non-stationary (wavelet and filtering) analyses of the data to extract temporal characteristics of the(More)
The waters of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago are subject to intense boat traffic related to the high number of leisure boats frequenting this area during the summer tourist season. Boat noise dominates the acoustic environment of the local bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) population. This study investigates the spatial and temporal change in the(More)
The paper documents the use of a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) method to reconstruct paleochannels and the paleo-coastline during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) in the Central Eastern Adriatic area. We focused on the paleo-coastline and paleo-channels of the Neretva and the Cetina rivers, which were estimated from the 15’’ bathymetry available for the(More)
An ocean surface currents forecasting system, based on a Self-Organizing Maps (SOM) neural network algorithm, high-frequency (HF) ocean radar measurements and numerical weather prediction (NWP) products, has been developed for a coastal area of the northern Adriatic and compared with operational ROMS-derived surface currents. The two systems differ(More)
