Assessing the Vulnerability of California's Transportation Infrastructure to Future Climate Change

Abt Global is providing geographic information systems (GIS) and climate change support to assess the vulnerability of California’s Transportation infrastructure to future climate change for California’s Department of Transportation (CalTrans).

We are evaluating whether existing data sets developed by the state are appropriate for this assessment and we are developing additional projections for other stressors as needed. The stressors we are evaluating include:
  • Sea level rise
  • Storm Surge
  • Wildfire
  • Landslides, with and without contributory precipitation changes
  • Precipitation/flooding, with and without contributory snowpack melt
  • Temperature
  • Drought
