Climate Change Impacts on Transportation Workshop

Transport Canada held a two-day workshop in Canmore, AB, January 2003 on the impacts of climate change on transportation in Canada. Impacts on transportation in Canada may arise from: – opening of the Northwest Passage – sea level rise – increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events – increased frequency of freeze/thaw cycles – changes to lake levels or debris flows in rivers – degradation of permafrost – droughts/extreme heat – warmer winters – avalanches Follow the link below to read the preliminary report and highlights from this workshop.
