The Infrastructure & Climate Network (ICNet) is a network of over 60 academics, students, and practitioners who are dedicated to accelerating climate science and engineering research in the Northeastern United States. The ICNet focuses on climate change and sea level rise impacts and adaptation for sustainable bridges, roads, and transportation networks. The ICNet was established in October 2012 with support from the National Science Foundation.

Webinar: Northeast US flood mechanisms, hydroclimatic trends, and implications for hydrologic design
Mar 24, 2016 11:00 AM EDT
Introduction: In this presentation we will describe known major flood-generating mechanisms in the Northeast US. We will also summarize our research, and research by others, on how flood magnitudes and frequencies have changed as a consequence of historical hydroclimatic changes. Potential implications of past trends and future changes for designing floodplain infrastructure will also be reviewed.

The ICNet website has been reinvented, and we will be highlighting a few changes each month:
- ICNet Climate Maps: Maps showing the projected changes for a number of indicators as global mean temperature rises.
- Agency Reference Database: A collection of over 60 reports and other documents related to climate change and infrastructure
