Regional Assessment of Climate impact on European WINdstorms:
Track clustering and multi-peril dependency

The RACEWIN project aims at assessing a potential evolution in the distribution of tracks followed by European windstorm events under a changed climate. A regional analysis is targeted. A better understanding of the clustering effect (several events following one another along a similar path), along with studying the response of the phenomena to a climate change signal is also within the scope of the project. This project addresses the 2009 Call 2: Impact of Climate Change on European Windstorm tracks of the Axa Research Fund.

In contrast to previous studies on the effect of climate change and storminess, this project focuses analysis to aspects that are directly relevant to insured losses over Europe.
