IMK-TRO together with University of Bern, Meteo Swiss and Mobiliar Lab jointly organizes the 1st European Workshop in Bern. Despite the large damage potential, there is a substantial lack of knowledge about hail climatology and risk, hail forecasting, cloud microphysics, and the relationship between hail probability and cli¬mate change. The 1st European Workshop will bring together researchers studying different aspects of hail and representatives from insurance, business and agriculture.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
•Nowcasting and forecasting of hail
•Local probabilities and long-term statistics of hail
•The microphysics and dynamics of hail storms
•Convection and hail in a changing climate
•Hail damage and hail damage prevention
