The introduction of new horizontal drilling technologies has led to explosive growth in the domestic production of crude oil and natural gas, creating new freight flows by different modes of transport, especially impacting the pipeline, rail and maritime sectors. Several significant and dramatic incidents, triggered a study by the Transportation Research Board, which assessed the experience of all the impacted modes. Professor Philip was a member of the TRB Study Committee and will report on its findings, and on his team’s additional work looking more deeply

Container ports on the Southeast Coast of the United States are investing billions of dollars in a competition to handle the next generation of container ships. For all the ports, Far Eastern import cargo is the prize. The ports are all competing for federal, state and local funds, with political clout sometimes more important than economic reality.Container ports on the Southeast Coast of the United States are investing billions of dollars in a competition to handle the next generation of container ships.

This seminar will examine recent efforts at planning for potential climate change impacts on the nation’s transportation system. The analysis frameworks for doing such planning will be discussed, as well as some of the political aspects of working in a “denial” environment. Examples will be presented of adaptation planning around the United States, including a study being conducted for the Massachusetts DOT. Research and studies on how climate change could affect transportation planning, engineering design and land use will be explored in the talk. The presentation will end with some thoughts on the future of climate change and transportation adaptation planning in the Trump Era.
