December 1916: Deadly Wartime Weather

One of the worst meteorological disasters in history took place in the southeastern Alps during the infamous winter of 1916/17. Avalanches following a massive snowfall event killed thousands of soldiers as well as civilians. Novel insight into the event arises from a detailed reconstruction based on weather forecast models and shows the potential of combining numerical techniques with historical documents. This helps to better understand worst-case weather events in the past and future and their societal impacts.
Specialists are lacking in the hospitals of Cameroon, despite the many efforts to train more people. The poor infrastructure and the lack of jobs means suitable candidates prefer to look abroad.
