Weather Radar Network in Croatia

  • Branko Gelo

Summary

The technical specifications for the weather radar network in Croatia are presented in this paper. There are two radars in this area (close to Zagreb and Osijek) — WSR-74S. In addition five Doppler radars (DWSR-88S) have been ordered. The installation of the new radars will start in summer 1991 and the network should be completed by the end of the year 1992.

Radars DWSR-88S will be supported by MicroVax 3400 computers with IRIS software (Interactive Radar Information System) and our expert system for hail suppression. We intend to realize a transmission network between radars via phone lines, modems and Decnet. The composite picture will be put together in Zagreb on MicroVax 3600.
