A major source of natural hazards, mid-latitude storms have devastating socio-economic impacts. Yet the processes involved in their intensification and generation of disastrous impacts such as flooding are not fully understood.
Initiated by David Stephenson in 2011 the European storm workshops aims at bringing together dynamical meteorologists, climatologists, statisticians, stakeholders and risk model developers from insurance and engineering consultant companies. Thereby, these interdisciplinary workshops try to bridge state-of-the-art breakthroughs in sciences to the practical implementation in risk modeling.
