Oceanographic Department (OC Department) of the Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia (HHI) participates in the scientific project entitled "Strength and Variability of the Adriatic Sea Level Extremes in Present and Future Climates" (StVar-Adri), financed by the Croatian Science Foundation.

Under this project, the OC Department employees were given the opportunity to improve existing and acquire new knowledge with the possibility of using new technologies and devices in the area of activity of the HHI Hydrographic Survey Office.

On 5 October 2022, a Vaisala PTB300 digital air pressure measuring device with an associated microcomputer was installed in Zadar. The data obtained will contribute to the analysis of extreme floods in the Adriatic and will have, in addition to the scientific contribution, a strong social component in providing updated assessments of current and future flood risks along the Adriatic coast.
