Hurricane Irma - Prof. Leo Haimberger in an interview in the ORF magazine "Thema"

Hurricane Irma raged for days in the Caribbean and Florida; it has sparked a television contribution on 11.9.2017 in the ORF magazine "Thema". Prof. Haimberger Leo explains how this hurricane came about.

In the interview he discusses the causes of such an intensity of the hurricane, but he also explains in general the possibilities of such storms. Another issue is the acquisition of measurement data by means of flights through the eye of the storms, which are necessary for accurate hurricane prediction.
