MEDICANES: meteorological environments, numeric forecasting and the assessment of present and future risks
- Economy and Competitiveness Ministry
- 2009 - 2012
The purpose of the project has been to the characterisation of the meteorological environments which are ideal for the development and maintenance of Mediterranean tropical-like cyclones. Thus, the numeric forecasting thereof has been examined and improved by means of group prediction systems; post-processing techniques have been implemented in order to appropriately describe the probability forecasts, with emphasis on the extreme phenomenon and, finally, the risk of Mediterranean tropical-like cyclones and the uncertainty thereof has been quantitatively managed under present and future climate conditions.
