Climate Change Effects on Navy Island Bases: In-Progress Executive Summary
Guest, Tom Murphree Arlene
MetadataShow full item record
The effects of climate change on Navy island bases are on-going and are likely to be substantial over the next several decades. These effects occur due to changes in sea level, storm activity, and other environmental factors that affect critical infrastructures (e.g., command and control, fuel, power generation, transportation, water resource, sanitation, and other facilities). In our study, we are identifying and assessing actual and projected macro-level effects of climate change on four Navy fleet concentration island bases: Joint Base Pearl Harbor- Hickam (JBPHH), Guam, Diego Garcia, and Okinawa to assist the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) in planning for these bases.
