Economic Implications of Climate Change Impacts to Great Lakes Ports, Harbors, and Marinas

March 1, 2011
11:00 a.m. 12:00 p.m. (CST)
Webinar (out of the University of Ohio)

Registration is free, but participants must sign up online at http://changingclimate.osu.edu/webinars/.

Featured speakers: Dale Bergeron, Minnesota Sea Grant, and Gene Clark, Wisconsin Sea Grant.

Great Lakes ports, harbors, and marinas are vulnerable to a changing climate. To understand the issue, the NOAA Great Lakes Sea Grant Network has been studying the level of awareness, identifying specific actions for addressing Great Lakes climate change, and creating a scalable tool or matrix to help stakeholders understand both the current value and potential threats or liability related to navigation aids and port infrastructure. This webinar will provide information about:

  • Results of case study surveys about attitudes and awareness of Great lakes ports
  • Climate change issues relevant to Great Lakes ports, harbors, and marinas
  • Development of a scalable economic tool to evaluate the economic impacts for climate change scenarios
  • Results of the tool applications for two Great Lakes ports case studies (Toledo, OH and Duluth/Superior, MN/WI)
  • How a matrix tool concept might be used to understand similar concerns with Storm Water/Waste Water systems
