Infrastructure is traditionally designed with the assumption that the climate is stationary. Given the broad scientific consensus that global climate change is now occurring on a time scale shorter than the life of most infrastructure, it is clear that our design criteria must be adapted to take climate change into account. This presentation will provide a picture of future climate projections across Canada and the expected impacts of climate change on our infrastructure.
Presenter: Jean-Luc joined the firm Lasalle | NHC in 2018 as a project engineer. He has a Ph.D. in hydrology and climate change from the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). He has published scientific papers and presented his research at international conferences. Jean-Luc serves on several boards and committees in addition to teaching fluid mechanics and water resources to ÉTS undergraduate students.
