European storminess : late nineteenth century to present

  title={European storminess : late nineteenth century to present},
  author={Christoph Matulla and Wolfgang F. Schoener and Hans Alexandersson and Hans von Storch and Xiaolan L. Wang},
Annual and seasonal statistics of local air pressure characteristics have already been used as proxies for storminess across Northern Europe. We present an update of such proxies for Northern Europe and an unprecedented analysis for Central Europe which together considerably extends the current knowledge of European storminess. Calculations are completed for three sets of stations, located in North-Western, Northern and Central Europe. Results derived from spatial differences (geostrophic winds… CONTINUE READING
