Geohazards, Extreme Weather Events, and Climate Change Resilience Manual

Geohazards—such as landslides, liquefaction, rockfalls, subsidence, expansive/collapsible soils, and erosion—can pose major threats to transportation assets. Extreme weather events can also trigger and/or exacerbate geohazards, and the increasing incidence of such events is a concern in certain regions of the United States. A geohazards management program that evaluates the associated risk can help transportation agencies manage these threats by making comprehensive system performance decisions. Such a program can help agencies manage cost-effective methods for characterizing and reducing risk, develop adaptation methods, and establish a resilient transportation system.
