November 5-8, 2006. INFORMS, Joint Session: Urban Transportation Planning Models I: Transportation System Risk, Security, and Emergency Response. Pittsburgh, PA.

Regional economic measurements and models to discern patterns in concentration are applied to U.S. air, sea, and land transport of people and goods, as well as the transport of energy products. Policy implications and transferability of decision tools are described.
