Sea-level time series from 1955 to 2004 relevant to the northern (Rovinj), middle (Split-harbour) and southern (Dubrovnik) part of Croatian Adriatic coast have been analysed to make estimates of return sea levels for 100-years return period. This was done by fitting observed annual sea level maxima and minima to an assumed parametric "Generalised Extreme Value" (GEV) distribution function which has three parameters. A little discrepancy in the predicted return sea levels estimates for 100-years return period exists in comparison with previous studies, due to different methodologies used in the analysis and diverse length of time series data.
