1987 storm wind strength record
1987 storm wind strength record. Data from a recording anemometer showing wind strength during the storm of 1987. A recording anemometer, or anemograph, consists of an instrument that is turned by the wind, attached to pens that trace the measurements on to a rotating drum. The traces show variations in wind force, and the strength and frequency of gusts over time. A break in the records was caused by a power failure. This storm hit the South East of England on 16th October 1987 bringing hurricane-force winds. It developed rapidly and forecasters were unable to predict its path or ferocity. Gusts measuring over 165 kilometres an hour were recorded on the South coast. The storm felled 15 million trees, severely damaged buildings, blew ships ashore and killed 18 people

Europe at night, 1993-2003 changes
Europe at night, showing the change in illumination from 1993-2003. This data is based on satellite observations. Lights are colour-coded. Red lights appeared during that period. Orange and yellow areas are regions of high and low intensity lighting respectively that increased in brightness over the ten years. Grey areas are unchanged. Pale blue and dark blue areas are of low and high intensity lighting that decreased in brightness. Very dark blue areas were present in 1993 and had disappeared by 2003. Much of western and central Europe has brightened considerably. Some North Sea gas fields closed in the period
