Historical records show multi-decadal variability in Atlantic basin hurricane activity, but any variability in hurricane landfall appears to be harder to demonstrate. Such temporal and spatial change in hurricane activity requires a time-dependent approach to quantify risk. RMS scientists presented details on medium-term landfall rates in their new RMS RiskLink v11.0 hurricane model via a highly interactive presentation. In March 2012 RPI and RMS held a discussion on the implications of the RMS approach and explored new avenues for research which will be addressed by RPI2.0 funded research projects. These will lead to the development and presentation of alternative perspectives on medium-term rates in 2012.
