In this press conference, scientists explain how Artificial Intelligence (AI) helps to keep track of tropical-like cyclones across the Mediterranean Sea, so-called ‘Medicanes’, and how having a truly in-depth look at damage datasets can actually prevent financial losses when windstorms hit Europe. Researchers will also outline how climate models are underestimating summer warming in Western Europe, and that recently observed extreme heatwaves will likely be dwarfed by future events.
