Abstract

In paper are presented results of bioclimatic model Wet bulbe globe temperature (WBGT) for the area of the city of Bijeljina, for the period of 10 years, from 2009 to 2018. The city is located in the north east part of Bosnia and Herzegovina and has a moderate continental climate. Results were obtained by calculation of meteorological data in software program Biklima 2.6. They show the presence of all five values defined with the WBGT index. Results differ in during the year, and seasons and have different number of days with the Unlimited (<18) being the most common value and Activity should be stopped (>30) the least presence. Some years have the high number of high values (over 30) and present a potential danger for a human organism if exposed to physical activities. Number of consecutive days with high value rises and presents danger for human organism.
