Oscillations in Air temperature and Precipitation in the Last 18 Years in BiH

Agency for Statistics of Bosnia and Herzegovina in cooperation with the Federal Hydrometeorological Institute of FBiH and RS Hydrometeorological Institute provided data on air temperature and precipitation for the period from 2000 – 2018.

This Release contains an annual average temperature of the air and precipitation, its development over a given period of time, and deviations from a long-­­term average in the country as a whole.

Next to the global average value, the rate and spatial distribution of temperature and precipitation change are important for determining the capacity of natural ecosystems to adapt to climate change.

Change in air temperature -­­ observed over a long period of time -­­ is evidence of one of climate change’s most serious effects, which has been especially noticeable in recent decades.

It should be taken into account that the average values of temperature and precipitation contribute to facilitating the general review of the values and monitoring trends, but also this approach carries inevitably losing display of minimum and maximum values of rainfall and temperature highs, which have a strong influence during limited periods of the year.
