As Climate Changes, Small Increases in Rainfall May Cause Widespread Road Outages

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

As more rain falls on a warming planet, a new computer model shows that it may not take a downpour to cause widespread disruption of road networks. The model combined data on road networks with the hills and valleys of topography to reveal “tipping points” at which even small localized increases in rain cause widespread road outages.
