A 450 year record of spring‐summer flood layers in annually laminated sediments from Lake Ammersee (southern Germany)

A 450 year spring‐summer flood layer time series at seasonal resolution has been established from the varved sediment record of Lake Ammersee (southern Germany), applying a novel methodological

Atmospheric processes triggering the central European floods in June 2013

Abstract. In June 2013, central Europe was hit by a century flood affecting the Danube and Elbe catchments after a 4 day period of heavy precipitation and causing severe human and economic loss. In

Clustering of Regional-Scale Extreme Precipitation Events in Southern Switzerland

AbstractTemporal clustering of extreme precipitation events on subseasonal time scales is of crucial importance for the formation of large-scale flood events. Here, the temporal clustering of

Large‐scale heavy precipitation over central Europe and the role of atmospheric cyclone track types

The analysis of the top 50 precipitation events revealed an outstanding heavy precipitation period from 2006 to 2011 in the Czech Republic, but no gradual long‐term change, and suggests that Atlantic winter cyclones are most relevant for heavy precipitation.

Atmospheric circulation patterns associated with the variability of River Ammer floods: evidence from observed and proxy data

Abstract. The relationship between the frequency of River Ammer floods (southern Germany) and atmospheric circulation variability is investigated based on observational Ammer River discharge data

Solar modulation of flood frequency in central Europe during spring and summer on interannual to multi-centennial timescales

Abstract. Solar influences on climate variability are one of the most controversially discussed topics in climate research. We analyze solar forcing of flood frequency in central Europe during spring

Climatology of Vb cyclones, physical mechanisms and their impact on extreme precipitation over Central Europe

Abstract. Cyclones, which develop over the western Mediterranean and move northeastward are a major source of extreme weather and known to be responsible for heavy precipitation over the northern

Indices for monitoring changes in extremes based on daily temperature and precipitation data

Indices for climate variability and extremes have been used for a long time, often by assessing days with temperature or precipitation observations above or below specific physically‐based
