MIT Climate Resilience Planning: Flood Vulnerability Study

The MIT Flood Vulnerability Study is one key part of a broader initiative led by the MIT Climate Resiliency Committee (CRC) and the MIT Office of Sustainability (MITOS) to understand and recommend how MIT can continue to fulfill its mission in the face of intensifying climate risks over the next 100 years and beyond; risks include precipitation flooding, sea level rise storm surge and chronic heat stress.

This study seeks to translate the science of current flooding risks and future campus-based flooding risk from climate change into operational and strategic guidance for informing campus planning and management.
