ABSTRACT

Does Sea Level Rise Matter to Transportation Along the Atlantic Coast?   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Introduction: "A steady barrage of studies and news reports about global warming has ensured that virtually all transportation planners realize that the transportation sector of the U.S. economy is an important cause of increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases. Less attention has been paid, however, to the effects of global warming on transportation--and virtually no attention has been paid to the ways by which our transportation infrastructure may impair our ability to adapt to the consequences of global warming. [...] This paper is part of a DOT [Department of Transportation] process to motivate adaptation to climate change in the U.S. transportation sector."
