Penticton Airport Climate Change Risk Assessment Report

Posted on

The objective of this project is to review and analyse the design and construction of the existing mechanical, electrical and transportation infrastructure against anticipated changes in climate parameters as a result of climate change specific to the Penticton Airport and surrounding regions. Based on this analysis, the Prism team assessed the engineering vulnerability of the identified infrastructure and provide recommendations that will support Transport Canada in their future planning and project implementation for the Penticton Airport.

INUVIK AIRPORT CLIMATE CHANGE VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

Posted on

BGC Engineering Inc. (BGC) was retained by Transport Canada (TC) to carry out an assessment of northern airports and their vulnerability to climate change. As part of this work a climate change vulnerability assessment was carried out for Inuvik’s Mike Zubko Airport located in the continuous permafrost zone of the Northwest Territories in Canada. The assessment looked at a 30-year projected trends for the Inuvik region, which are based on historic climate data and climate projections using climate models. Attachments … Read more

ASSESSMENT OF TORONTO PEARSON AIRPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Posted on

The GTAA decided to undertake an engineering vulnerability assessment of infrastructure in the context of both the existing climate and future climate change using the PIEVC Protocol. The Protocol is a step-by-step process to conduct an engineering vulnerability assessment on infrastructure due to climate change. Potential issues and concerns arising from changing climate: Airport infrastructure is considered vulnerable to the types of weather related stresses that will be exacerbated by climate change; Climate change could threaten airport infrastructure; Potential flooding … Read more
