A new report issued by SERDP reviews models and data needed to support climate change vulnerability and impact assessments of infrastructure assets located at military installations. The SERDP report Infrastructure Damage/Fragility Models and Data Quality Issues Associated with Department of Defense Climate Vulnerability and Impact Assessment assesses the availability, quality, and usefulness of two types of information to support assessments: (1) damage and fragility information, and (2) topographic, bathymetric, and infrastructure asset data.

The report makes a number of recommendations specific to both the damage and fragility information and the data quality, as well as general recommendations regarding the alignment of decisions with data quality, information availability, and uncertainty. View related blog entry
