case showing 1200 UTC 26 Aug 2012. The yellow star shows the location of Dakar. 5. Statistical analysis Using the two cases discussed in section 4 as illustration, here we examine the capability of SRFE to reproduce observed rain rates and their applicability for a flood risk assessment for the African continent. For this, the satellite data will be directly compared to the surface measurements to highlight systematic differences between these two sources of rainfall information. a. Comparison of

, allowing plenty of opportunities for exchange and discussion. Presentations and the discussions they generated focused on the dynamics of European windstorms (extreme midlatitude cyclones), their predictability and variability from weather to climate time scales, risk assessments, and academic–insurance industry collaborations. The workshop included keynote lectures given by speakers from both academia and the insurance industry. Highlights of each session are discussed below. DYNAMICS OF EUROPEAN
