Mediterranean Hurricanes?

Mediterranean Hurricanes?

The Mediterranean could start generating its own hurricanes, if sea temperatures keep rising, a study has warned.
In a paper published in the American Geophysical Union Journal, Miguel Gaertner and colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, Germany, used a range of regional climate models to assess the chance of similar events in the Mediterranean.
Evidently, a rise of 3ºC in average temperatures, due to anthropogenic global warming, could trigger the formation of hurricanes and tropical storms in the Mediterranean. “

Their results appear in the latest issue of the Journal Geophysical Research Letters Geophysical Research Letters .
