  2. What parts of the transportation system will be most vulnerable to climate change?
  3. How can climate information be most effectively translated for use by transportation practitioners?
  4. How will climate adaptation need to be integrated into existing transportation management systems? What capacity currently exists for adaptation?
  5. What tools and datasets apply broadly to different transportation users and sectors? What information needs to be local and regional specific?
  6. What information and resources are necessary to enable transportation officials to effectively adapt transportation systems to climate change stresses and extreme weather events?How will transportation demands be impacted by climate change?
  7. What infrastructure changes will be needed to ensure viability of evacuation routes in coastal areas?
