Evaluation of Future Impacts of MEdicanes, and Risk Associated 

Main Objective

To reduce the risk of victims and general negative impacts on the environment and society, a better characterization and estimation of the frequency of future medicanes is necessary. Such improvements would be of great interest to meteo/climate services, insurance companies, governments and the population of the Mediterranean region. The main objective of the EFIMERA project is to contribute to the knowledge in this direction by evaluating the future risk associated with the mesoscale cyclones in the Mediterranean using different approaches and high resolution data. 

Efimera is a two years research project funded by European funding for regional development, FEDER. Starting date:  01/02/20
