Methods for Determining Transportation and Economic Consequences of Terrorist Attacks

The scope includes the examination of tools, methodologies, models, and other scientific methods that can aid in meeting or achieving the objectives of identifying, characterizing, and estimating the costs of certain potential transportation network disruptions, as well as to identify and prioritize potential strategic investments in strengthening adaptive responses (via guidelines). The applicability of this project is the U.S. surface transportation system, including rail, highways, maritime, sea and inland ports, waterways, and access to, but not including, airports. This study will specifically exclude references and inferences to military transportation, facilities, bases, and other homeland or national defense facilities. The panel will meet in July 2003 to review the interim report.
