About Lorenzo Minola

Research interests
Title of my doctoral project: "Wind speed extremes across Northern Europe: from their origin to their changes and impact"

My Ph.D. project focuses on wind, one of the less studied climate variable, and aims to assess wind extremes and its associated events with direct socioeconomic and environmental impacts across Northern Europe, in particular Scandinavia. By analysis meteorological observations and climate model outputs, extreme wind hazards are investigated at different spatial scales (from regional to synoptical scale) to identify the physical processes behind their origins and attribute possible past and future changes. In particular, those research questions are investigated?

  • What is the spatial and temporal variability of extreme wind across Northern Europe?
  • How has extreme wind climate changed and what are the plausible changes in the future?
  • What are the factors and the physical processes (e.g., atmospheric circulation patterns) behind the origins and the changes of extreme wind events?
  • What are the possible impacts of extreme wind on sea level changes?

 

Research group
Member of the Regional Climate Group (RCG) at the University of Gothenburg.
