Description
Paul Barford, Dept of Computer Sciences, UW–Madison One of the most alarming effects of climate change is sea level rise due to melting polar ice and seawater thermal expansion. I will describe work to assess the risks to US Internet infrastructure due to sea level rise. I will provide details on the Internet Atlas project for mapping Internet infrastructure, the methodology used to align our data with sea level incursion projections, and key results from our study.
