Eastern Coastal Infrastructure & Climate Change

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 08:00 to Friday, February 28, 2014 - 18:00

This conference will focus on the science, impacts, planning, and response to climate change along the East Coast.

The event is sponsored by The Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Institute of Geophysics, Planetary Physics and Signatures. The goal of this conference is to bring together scientists, stakeholders, and decision makers to communicate the current state of scientific understanding and anticipated future progress; the scientific and modeling needs of stakeholders; approaches to risk management and decision-making under uncertainty; and to develop relationships and opportunities for collaboration between scientists, stakeholders, and decision makers. This focus of this facilitated discussion will be on populated areas with significant infrastructure along the East Coast. The final product of our discussion will be a guidance document or manuscript, reviewing the technical achievements and gaps, needs of the stakeholder community and decision makers.

The agenda includes sessions focused on the Experiences and Needs of Stakeholders; Sea Level: what we know now, what we need to do to better understand planning, impacts, and response; Scientific Prediction of Coastal Impacts: How Seriously Should Stakeholders and Responders Take Model/Prediction Results?; Decision Support and Uncertainty Quantification, and Risk Analysis.
