TOPICS Geo Natural Catastrophes

BEAWIHARTA/Reuters/Corbis

2015 was another year in which losses from natural catastrophes remained fairly low. In fact, overall losses and insured losses were even below the 30-year average. The natural “climate oscillation” El Niño had a marked influence on the patterns of weather-related events, and was partly responsible for the low level of hurricane activity in the North Atlantic.


The current issue of Topics Geo provides the facts and figures behind the year’s events and analyses the processes that caused them.
