climXtreme A4: Persistent Summer Extremes over Europe due to wave-Resonance Events (PERSEVERE)
In our subproject PERSEVERE, the aim is to improve the physical understanding of atmospheric wave-resonance events in summer. Such events are often associated with persistent summer extremes in Europe, such as heatwaves, droughts and storms that bear important environmental and societal risks.
Summer 2018: Simultaneous extremes in the mid-latitudes coinciding with an amplified circumglobal Rossby wave (Figure from “Mann, M. (March 2019). The Weather Amplifier. Scientific American, 43-49“).
