Sažetak
The knowledge about thermal comfort of men has an important role in human health and activities, especially in tourism, recreation and sport. In spite of the efforts that have been made to investigate temperature changes during the last century, these results cannot completely clarify their impacts on men. This paper analyses the variations and trends of the PET (Physiologically Equivalent Temperature) and PMV (Predicted Mean Vote), the biometeorological parameters based on the human energy balance models. The climatic changes are analysed during the period 1901-2000 for all seasons and for the annual values at the meteorological stations Crikvenica and Hvar. Both are very attractive tourist destination at the eastern Adriatic coast – Crikvenica situated in the northern Adriatic and Hvar situated on island of Hvar in the middle Adriatic. In spite of some missing data in time series, they were subject to trend analysis. In order to remove short-term fluctuations in data series, they have been smoothed by means of the 11-year binomial moving average filter. The linear trends have been tested for significance by means of nonparametric Mann-Kendall rank statistics. For the series, which showed the significant trend identified by the Mann-Kendall coefficient t, a progressive analysis of the time series by means of the statistic u(t) was performed in order to determine the beginning of this phenomenon.
