**Summary**: A 12-year record of surface ozone data collected by means
ofSchoenbein's method in Zagreb, Croatia, 1889-1900, is analyzedand
calibrated. The data were collected twice a day. To convertthe original
data into absolute units the Montsouris regressionmodified by Bojkov has
been used. The statistical parameters ofdaytime and night-time data samples
show a significantdifference.

**Keywords**: Surface ozone, 19th century ozone observations, daytime and night-time ozone data, historical ozone data, seasonical ozone cycle.

**Summary**: In this paper an aproximation of the occurence probability
of wind direction classes by means of a mixture distribution consisting of
several component distributions is described. In particular, undetermined
parameter values of a mixture distribution describing a wind rose are
estimated by minimizing an appropriate function. Deviations of the obtained
frequencies from the wind rose data are subjected to a chi-square test.
Every component of the mmixture distribution is expected to have an
occurance probability equal to the probability of the corresponding airflow
type. This method has been applied to approximately two hundred wind data
samples based on particular parts of a day and year. Results of two
characteristics examples are discussed. It is expected that the
statistically obtained components can be explained by meteorological and
topoclimatological parameters.

**Summary**: Inertia contents of the current time series taken at two
stations in the Northern Adriatic between May 1988 and November 1990, and
hydrographic data measured at the same stations in the
period 1966 - 1991, were analyzed. The object of investigation was
to document seasonal variability of the inertial signal and its
decay time. It was shown that amplitudes of the inertial
oscillations are maximal in summer, having average surface value
of about 10 cm/s, and that they are at the noise level throughout
winter. Such variation is due to seasonal changes in static
stability of the water column, and is also influenced by seasonal
variability of decay time of the inertial oscillations. Ratio of
the amplitudes observed above and below pycnocline is controlled
by the pycnocline depth, as predicted by the two-layer model.
Decay times of the inertial oscillations were found to range
between 20 and 80 hours, with a maximum recorded in summer. This
is due to damping imposed on the two-layer sea by the interface
and bottom friction, which in turn is heavily dependent on
stratification. The contribution of the interface friction to
damping varies from less then 5% in summer to about 30% in spring
and autumn.

**Summary**: This paper deals with various transformations comonly
employed in order to obtain near normal distribution of precipitation data.
In paricular, we discuss the properties of the square-root-normal
distribution and its relationship to the other commonly used two-parameter
distributions. Similarities of different distributions are discussed with
the aid of the normal probability graph and the moment ratio diagram. The
latter has the coefficient of variatio on the abscissa and the coefficient
of skewness on the ordinate. The examination of some historical data sets
with the help of these diagrams demonstrates a large variety of forms, but
also points to some of their common characteristics.

**Keywords**: Statistical distribution of rainfall, temporal variability of rainfall.

**Summary**: A simple parameterization of turbulence in an analytical
study of wave drag (WD) is used upon governing equations for linearized,
parallel, adiabatic, dry Boussinesq flow. Besides the known dependencies of
WD on vertical profiles of the mean wind and temperature and the shape of
orographic disturbance, WD also dependson eddy diffusivity, which
parameterizes turbulence. Since eddy diffusivity is present, WD is not
constant with height but is continuously dissipated in the atmospheric
boundary layer (ABL). This dissipation is sometimes not negligible because
characteristic wavelengths associated with an ABL over small ridges are
short enough (Lambdax cca 1km) to experience overall turbulence. Under
certain conditions and when no critical level is encountered (although
critical level might be approached asymptotically here), WD can be reduced
for roughly 15%-20% of its surface value. Hence, it is revealed that
dissipation of WD can support turbulence in the stable ABL.

**Summary**: A theoryof the background pollution has been derived which
enables to determine a local background pollution, Cb, by means of
simultaneous series of wind velocities and pollutant concentrations data.
The model has been applied to the data at Puntijarka (Mt. Medvednica) in
order to estimate the magnitude of the pollutants long-range transport to
the northwestern Croatia.

**Keywords**: local background pollution, wind velocity, pollutant concentrations, long-range transport
