Panel Discussion 9 New Developments and Opportunities in Surface Transportation

Thursday, 4 April 2013: 8:40 AM-10:15 AM
Auditorium (AAAS Building)

A wide variety of weather conditions can adversely impact surface transportation systems and result in injury, death, and economic loss that can even exceed that resulting from more widely-publicized severe weather conditions such as tornadoes and hurricanes. The Surface Transportation panel will discuss recent developments in meteorological support to the transportation sector, and their potential benefits, not only for the transportation sector, but also the wider weather enterprise.
