Introduction to the HyMeX Special Issue on ‘Advances in understanding and forecasting of heavy precipitation in the Mediterranean through the HyMeX SOP1 field campaign’

Abstract : This Special Issue presents a wide range of studies carried out over the last three years exploiting the exceptional dataset of observations and model output collected during SOP1. The special issue consists of a series of 31 articles. Some major results of these articles are summarized in the following sections. Section 2 presents advances in observations and their use in characterizing HPE, section 3 highlights the advances in process understanding, and section 4 details results about predictability of HPE from numerical weather prediction (NWP) and regional climate models.
