Individual agreement.


Full (tenure) professor at the Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb, where he graduated and obtained his master's degree in 1983 and 1987; received his PhD in physics in 1992 from the Desert Research Institute, Reno, NV, USA; first postdoc in the USA, second in Uppsala, Sweden (40 months in total); he was an associate professor at the University of Uppsala and then at the University of Stockholm, Sweden, from 1996 and 1997 to 2003, when he returned to Zagreb after 15 years of working abroad. He has published more than 80 peer-reviewed scientific papers mainly in journals of significantly above-average impact factors in atmospheric physics and meteorology with climatology. His total impact factor is about 270, he has been cited over 1835 to over 2855 times, depending on the database [W-o-S, Scopus, Google Scholar], so he is one of the most cited Croatian meteorologists. In addition to atmospheric waves and turbulence, he deals with mountain and coastal meteorology and (micro)climatology. He has led or collaborated in a number of international scientific projects. He was or is a member of the editorial boards of several international journals including Tellus A series (Q1 in oceanography, Q2 in meteorology), reviewed over a hundred scientific papers and projects and participated in over 45 PhD committees in 10 countries on three continents, teaches several university courses in Dynamic Meteorology at all levels, (co-)led 11 PhD dissertations and over 40 diploma or master theses and introduced a few new scientific approaches in mesoscale and microscale meteorology, i.e., in geophysical fluid dynamics.
