The research group in Meteorology at the UIB investigates how global change will affect the generation of tropical cyclones with Mediterranean features

meteorology research group at the uibThe research group in Meteorology at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) leads a comprehensive research about tropical cyclones with Mediterranean characteristics in collaboration with the Numerical Modeling Group at the Meteorology State Agency (AEMET). The main aims of the project are to clarify the true phenomenology of these rare but dangerous weather events, to characterize precursor environments, to improve numerical predictability, and to evaluate the risk assessment in the present and future climate. Different studies have warned of the possible effects of global warming on hurricanes, and now researchers at the research group in Meteorology at the UIB work within the research project Medicanes: meteorological environments, numerical predictability and risk assessment in the present and future climate to determine which might be the future scenarios arising from changes that the global climate change will generate on the frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones with Mediterranean features.
