Evaluation of climate events that influence the ground freight transportation industry

PI: Kathryn Lane
Institution: University of Calgary
Abstract:
This project is focused on a frequency analysis of weather events that influence the ground freight transportation industry in Canada. Historical data has already been analyzed and I hope to use daily information from the GFDL-CM2.1 and HadCM3 in order to compare to projections produced by the CGCM3 (aquired from the CCCma). The focus is on extreme hot and cold days as well as precipitation thresholds (trace, light, moderate, and heavy for rain and snow). The results will be used in this project to create projections of future impacts or benefits for the transportation industry in each province. The results will also be applied in a macro-economic model that describes the actual annual speed reduction expected.
