NEXTRANS and the Purdue Student Chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers present a seminar by Dr. Mike Meyer, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Georgia Tech. Dr. Meyer's seminar, "Climate Change and Transportation: Challenges and Opportunities for the Transportation Sector," will discuss ongoing research looking at the potential threats of climate change (sea level rise, storm surges, higher/lower precipitation levels, higher/lower temperature levels, etc.) on the U.S. and internationally. An analysis framework being developed as part of an NCHRP project will be offered as a conceptual framework of how adaptation planning can be undertaken.
Dr. Meyer holds the Frederick R. Dickerson Chair, is Director of the Georgia Transportation Institute, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and former Chair of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has written over 180 technical articles and has authored or co-authored numerous texts on transportation planning and policy, including a college textbook. His publications have examined many issues in transportation ranging from land use/transportation interactions to freight and logistics planning to climate change.
