Distinguished Lecturer in Transportation - ABSTRACT

Michael D. Meyer, Ph.D., professor, Georgia Institute of Technology

Title: Climate Change and Transportation: Cause and Effect Challenges for Civil Engineering.

Abstract: The transportation sector is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions that evidence suggests is a major cause of climate change. This presentation will examine two aspects of this relationship as it affects transportation engineering: the emissions generated by the transportation sector as well as the potential effect of climate change on the transportation system. Different strategies for addressing both aspects will be presented, as well as thoughts relating to the likely direction that the United States will take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions through transportation actions. Included in these strategies will be actions to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion, as well as new vehicle technology and fuels. Examples from different parts of the United States as well as other countries will be given.
