A great number of intense cyclones occur every year in the Mediterranean basin, which is identified as one of the climate change hotspots. Mediterranean cyclones, although typically weaker and smaller than midlatitude cyclones over open oceans, represent a very distinct element of the global climate system. They often cause a broad range of severe socioeconomic and environmental impacts in this densely populated region. This calls for the coordination of community efforts to advance the field of Mediterranean cyclones as a whole, including interdisciplinary approaches, and involving the scientific community, the stakeholders, and the general public.

Abstract

A great number of intense cyclones occur every year in the Mediterranean basin, which is identified as one of the climate change hotspots. Mediterranean cyclones, although typically weaker and smaller than midlatitude cyclones over open oceans, represent a very distinct element of the global climate system. They often cause a broad range of severe socioeconomic and environmental impacts in this densely populated region. This calls for the coordination of community efforts to advance the field of Mediterranean cyclones as a whole, including interdisciplinary approaches, and involving the scientific community, the stakeholders, and the general public.
