dc.description.abstractThe Army’s approach to deployment has been evolving over the past 30 years in response to the global dispersion of threats coupled with the necessity to rapidly deploy, execute, and sustain operations worldwide. The result is a transformation from a forward-deployed Cold War force to a capabilities-based, power-projection force located largely in the United States. Increased deployment activity has become the normal operational standard within the continental United States, which may regularly affect the planning and operations for local authorities. The Army’s deployment abilities depend on the readiness of all stake-holders including the resilience of transportation infrastructure systems. Yet, transportation infrastructures are being damaged by sea level rise, heavy downpours, and extreme heat—conditions that are anticipated to increase with continued climate change. This work investigated the degree to which climate change may impact the ability of Army installations to deploy forces in the future, and concluded that : (1) climate change may potentially pose a significant threat to future deployability, but that stationing decisions regarding deployment need not be influenced by climate change projections at this time.en_US
