John Hanley and Rodrigo Caballero The role of large-scale atmospheric flow and Rossby wave breaking in the evolution of extreme windstorms over Europe Geophysical Research Letters 39

Version of Record online: 8 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2012GL053408

Key Points

  • 22 of the top 25 most destructive European windstorms have a similar evolution
  • They occur during exceptionally persistent, high NAO events which shift eastward
  • These conditions can be dynamically interpreted using Rossby wave breaking
