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.
The ICNet is an innovative mix of climate scientists, engineering researchers, private practitioners, and Northeastern State Department of Transportation and Federal agency representatives, all aiming to understand how climate change will impact transportation infrastructure. The ICNet’s annual membership workshops center on mutual education and discussion of new research, projects, opportunities, and challenges. From those workshops, several working groups have been established to tackle specific issues in uncertainty, vulnerability, planning and policy, asset management, and communications.
