Themes for the day…
The Science of Seasonal Hurricane Forecasting
After several years of relative low activity, how will this year’s expected La Niña conditions impact activity in the North Atlantic basin?
Introduced by Dr Rick Thomas, Managing Director of Willis Re Catastrophe Modelling Services, Dr Gabe Vecchi from NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University will discuss the cutting edge of seasonal hurricane forecasting and peak season expectations for 2016.
The Art of Generating European windstorms
As we head towards winter in Europe, how is the WRN helping us to develop a better view on windstorm risk?
The University of Exeter continues to pioneer research in developing stochastic event sets for European windstorms. Ahead of the 2016 European Windstorm season, Dr Ben Youngman, will present details on his recent work, alongside Dr Ioana Dima-West, Head of Model Research and Evaluation at Willis Re, who will demonstrate tangible application of this work in model validation.
