      Merz, BrunoORCIDiD; Kuhlicke, ChristianORCIDiD; Kunz, MichaelORCIDiD; Pittore, MassimilianoORCIDiD; Babeyko, AndreyORCIDiD; Bresch, David N.ORCIDiD; Domeisen, Daniela I. V.ORCIDiD; Feser, FraukeORCIDiD; Koszalka, IngaORCIDiD; Kreibich, HeidiORCIDiD; Pantillon, FlorianORCIDiD; Parolai, StefanoORCIDiD; Pinto, Joaquim G.ORCIDiD; Punge, Heinz JürgenORCIDiD; Rivalta, EleonoraORCIDiD; Schröter, KaiORCIDiD; Strehlow, KarenORCIDiD; Weisse, RalfORCIDiD; Wurpts, AndreasORCIDiD (Reviews of Geophysics, 2020)
      Forecasting and early warning systems are important investments to protect lives, properties, and livelihood. While early warning systems are frequently used to predict the magnitude, location, and timing of potentially ...
    • Investigation of the temporal variability of thunderstorms in central and western Europe and the relation to large-scale flow and teleconnection patterns 

      Piper, David A.; Kunz, MichaelORCIDiD; Allen, John T.ORCIDiD; Mohr, SusannaORCIDiD (Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society, 2019)
      The driving factors that influence the spatial and annual variability of thunderstorms across Europe are still poorly understood. Due to a lack of long-term, reliable and consistent information about the occurrence of ...
    • One Step at a Time: How Model Time Step Significantly Affects Convection-Permitting Simulations 

      Barrett, Andrew I.ORCIDiD; Wellmann, ConstanzeORCIDiD; Seifert, AxelORCIDiD; Hoose, CorinnaORCIDiD; Vogel, Bernhard; Kunz, MichaelORCIDiD (Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems, 2019)
      We show that there is a strong sensitivity of cloud microphysics to model time step in idealized convection-permitting simulations using the COnsortium for Small-scale MOdeling model. Specifically, we found a 53% reduction ...
    • Severe thunderstorms with large hail across Germany in June 2019 

      Wilhelm, JannikORCIDiD; Mohr, SusannaORCIDiD; Punge, Heinz JürgenORCIDiD; Mühr, Bernhard; Schmidberger, Manuel; Daniell, James E.; Bedka, Kristopher M.; Kunz, MichaelORCIDiD (Weather, 2020-12-07)
      From 10 to 12 June 2019, severe thunderstorms affected large parts of Germany. Hail larger than golf ball size caused considerable damage, especially in the Munich area where losses amount to EUR 1 billion. This event thus ...
