Recent research themes

Deep convection at midlatitudes, and especially heavy-precipitation systems in the Mediterranean area. More specifically:

The team is strongly involved in the organization and exploitation of the HyMeX experimental programme, the first special observing period of which took place in autumn 2012 and the second one in February-March 2013 (Ducrocq et al. 2014).
