The aim of WP3.1.2 is to investigate the role of Mediterranean cyclones in alpine hydrology, under the
assumption that current RCMs are capable of reproducing these events. Available RCM runs, forced
by ERA40, will be compared with observations on daily time scale. If the evaluation results prove to
be satisfactory, the climate change signal concerning all aspects of Mediterranean cyclones will
be quantified, using objective analysis tools that will be developed within this project.
