Will Changes in the Stratosphere Lead to More Extreme Weather Events?
23 January 2019
In the past few weeks cool, moist air masses from the north led to heavy snowfall in the Alps. This would not have been, in principle, an unusual weather situation if it had not persisted so long. In February/March of last year there was also lots of snow in eastern Europe and it was particularly cold as well. The reason for extreme events of this type could be changes in the stratosphere. EOC researchers expect this to be more often the case in the future.
