Module C coordination and index clustering


Module C coordination and index clustering

The project aims to build and continuously expand an integrated database on damaging weatherconditions on the basis of past and recent observational datasets (reanalysis data) as well as recent and future climate model projections. This starts from well-established extreme indices and integrating novel extreme indices through collaboration with the other projects from Module C focusing on impacts of multiple hazards considered in Module C. The project COO coordinates Module C and will integrate individual Module C work package results to build the database for damaging weather conditions in central Europe. As a key scientific question, the project will address clustering of damaging weather events which are particularly relevant in the (re)insurance context since clustering of damaging events can have severe economic implications.
