Subject Index Summary
Storms (Europe: France): Among the highly publicized changes in weather phenomena that are predicted to attend the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content are increases in the frequency and severity of all types of storms. As a result, and in an effort to determine if these predictions have any validity, many researchers have examined historical and proxy records in an attempt to determine how temperature changes over the past millennium or two have impacted this aspect of Earth's climate. This review examines what some of them have learned about storm trends in the European region around France.
