European Extratropical Cyclone Reference Model
Advanced physical modeling simulates the atmospheric environment to provide the impacts of intense wind events in the KCC European Extratropical Cyclone Model
European Extratropical Cyclone Snapshot
European countries can be impacted by back-to-back wind storms of significant intensity. The meteorological events that drive these storms, known as extratropical cyclones (ETCs), are challenging to model; minor variability in environmental conditions can have drastic effects. KCC scientists use a physics-based approach to simulate realistic atmospheric conditions in high resolution in order to accurately estimate annual storm occurrence, expected characteristics, and insured losses at the location level.
