From 1 to 5 September 2014 ESSL organized a workshop dedicated to the field of forensic meteorology: The first two days were dominated by expert presentations and very active discussions. On Wednesday and Thursday the whole team went to Slovenia and Italy to recent damage sites. Participants split up into four groups, three persons each group, and went into the field in order to assess damage to buildings and trees.
