Graph theory and betweenness centrality can help assessing transport network vulnerability to climate change

[tags climate change, adaptation]

Critical infrastructure networks, including transport, are crucial to the social and economic function of urban areas but are at increasing risk from natural hazards.

he network metric of betweenness centrality, weighted by travel time, is shown to provide a rapid approach to identify and prioritize the most critical locations for flood risk management intervention.
