Abstract

Climate variability and projected regional climate change due to increasing greenhouse gas concentrations have important implications for transportation systems and infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest (PNW). This white paper was motivated by the need to better understand the many potential impact pathways for transportation systems and infrastructure associated with climate variability and climate change in the PNW.
