1 Federal Department of Home Affairs FDHA Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss The covariation of windstorm frequency, intensity and loss over Europe with large- scale climate diagnostics A collaboration between SwissRe, MeteoSwiss, FP6 ENSEMBLES and NCCR Climate

2 2 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Outline The PreWiStoR project Predictability of European winter storminess Improved estimates of the European wind storm climate Storm selection method Improved estimates of loss due to European wind storms The Swiss Re loss model Calibration of ERA40, s2d and SwissRe storms The covariation of wind storm frequency, intensity and loss over Europe with large-scale climate diagnostics A bivariate extreme value peak over threshold model for wind storm intensity and loss

5 5 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller PreWiStoR: Prediction of winter Wind Storm Risk Problem: Observed records of wind storms are not long enough Solution: ~150 storms based on observations. Use probabilistic modelling to generate synthetic storms based on perturbed statistics Calculate losses New approach to use ENSEMBLE prediction systems (seasonal to decadal, s2d) Replace statistical perturbation with physics Utilise around ~500 seasons of S2D data Obtain a better estimate of wind storm risk and losses See van den Brink et al. IJC (2005)

6 6 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller PreWiStoR: Data Seasonal to decadal (s2d) climate prediction models Using the seasonal forecasting model of the ECMWF A coupled ocean-atmosphere Global Circulation Model 6-7 month forecast Separate ocean analysis system to initiate the seasonal forecasts ENSEMBLE prediction system: Model is run many times Initial conditions are perturbed Probabilistic Forecasts

11 11 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Improved estimates of the European wind storm climate Lack of predictability is disappointing, but the Seasonal Forecast data is still useful for risk assessment! Remove first month from seasonal forecasts independence of ensemble members Join multiple forecasts together to form an ONDJFMA season

12 12 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Storm Selection Method Index: Q95 Winter 1999/ % threshold

13 13 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Number of wind storms identified in ERA-40 and s2d Example ERA-40 wind storm climatology

14 14 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Comparison of wind storm frequency Wind storm climatologies are different in magnitude and shape All s2d models seem to have a less negative shape than ERA-40

15 15 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Improved estimates of wind storm frequency and magnitude uncertainty Return LevelReturn Period 95% Confidence interval (profile log-likelihood)

16 16 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller How can we compare the different climatologies? Apply a calibration technique to the Q95 relying on different assumptions Percentile based A high threshold based Mean based

17 17 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Example: percentile calibration curves SYS 3SYS 2DEMETER

18 18 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Frequency calibration: aliasing the data… Each s2d dataset has a different temporal resolution of the Q95 Has an effect on storm frequency, independent of model bias Solution: Alias ERA-40 to the same temporal res. ERA-40, 6hr SYS3, 12hr SYS2, 12hr DEMET ER, 24hr

19 19 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Percentile calibration and Aliasing

20 20 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller 95 th Percentile calibration and Aliasing

21 21 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller GPD Parameters after calibration Shape parameter is less negative Aliasing has helped the frequency of occurrence (lambda)

22 22 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Summary: Storm intensity and storm frequency comparison Large differences in storm intensities between SwissRe, ERA40 and s2d need a calibration method... Necessarily a comprimise -or- you believe the raw output of GCMs Overall agreement in storm frequency between ERA40 and s2d, however, as shown before, aliasing of the signal is possible.

23 23 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Swiss Re Wind Storm Loss Model ( catXos ) Vulnerability curve shows a cubic relation which is capped Portfolio value distribution is inhomogeous

24 24 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller The need for Calibration.... ERA40 850hPa Geostrophic wind fields are different from SwissRe wind fields SwissRe loss model is calibrated for use with SwissRe wind fields

25 25 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller CALIB1: ERA40 GWS SwissRE (*me2) Adjustment curve: CDF(SwissRE)-CDF(ERA40) Set to values greater than zero to zero

26 26 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller CALIB2: Sys3 GWS ERA40 GWS Adjustment curve: CDF(ERA40)-CDF(Sys3 GWS)

27 27 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Comparison of Loss Return Periods Calibrated wind storm wind fields including information on their duration is used as input to catXos Error estimates from the calibration methodology can be used to estimate errors in loss All loss return periods are expressed in %Total Insured Value (%TIV)

28 28 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Summary: Comparison of Loss Return Periods All s2d datasets and ERA40 tend to indicate that the SwissRe underestimated the return period of loss between 1-5 years For return periods > 40 years there is a tendency for SwissRe to overestimate the risk of loss Uncertainty in the calibration estimates leads to large uncertainties in loss bypass calibration by altering the vunerabilty in catXos However, the use of s2d data has replaced statistical perturbation of storms (SwissRE) with dynamical perturbations (s2d)

29 29 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller The covariation of wind storm frequency, intensity and loss over Europe with large-scale climate diagnostics Hypothesis: Large-scale atmospheric state has an influence the frequency and magnitude of wind storms As prediction of large-scale circulation improves in seasonal forecast models improved estimates of storminess, a type of potential predictabilty... S2d data maybe useful to determine the relationships since these relationships are determined using ERA40 or e.g. HadSLP i.e. Shorter than s2d The chicken or the egg? circular arguments

48 48 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Summary: Storm intensity models In ERA40: +NAO and -blocking pattern are related to + storm intensity In SYS 3: +NAO and +EAL pattern are related to + storm intensity Differences could be due to longer dataset or biases in SYS 3? Generally the statistical significance of intensity models is lower than with the frequency models

55 55 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller Extensions of the Method Reason the GPD and GEV are not suitable is that the monthly mean wind storm intensity is not GPD distributed! Investigate other distributions for loss data, currently we need a cube-root transformation! Compute conditional exceedence probabilities E.g. What is the probability of 5 or more wind storms occuring in a particular month conditional on PC1 score being x? Apply it to grid point statistics Assess the added accuracy in the relationships as a result of using s2d data

56 56 Prediction of Winter Storm Risk Paul Della-Marta, Mark Liniger, Christof Appenzeller A bivariate extreme value peak over threshold model for wind storm intensity and loss Using the methodology in Coles (2001) and the evd R - package Fitted to ERA40 wind storm Q95 and the transformed %TIV Could be used to define the vulnerability with real loss data
