Abstract: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) presents the results from an interagency collaboration within the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) and its Marine Transportation System Resilience Integrated Action Team (MTS R-IAT) (Figure 1) to identify priority resilience factors affecting operation of the Marine Transportation System (MTS). The MTS R-IAT analyzed resilience factors impacting the MTS to understand, categorize, and prioritize the MTS resilience issues of concern among federal agencies. This CHETN provides guidance on the capabilities for measuring resilience using existing federal datasets and proposes a framework to identify feasible and meaningful factors (metrics) for tracking port or infrastructure system performance before, during, and after disasters. This approach may be useful for understanding vulnerability of other regions or within other types of systems.
