Selected streamgage sites and periods of record for consideration of flood-generating mechanisms in Hawai`i and Southeast Alaska, 1913-2022

This data release consists of a comma-delimited ascii file with attributes for 21 U.S. Geological Survey streamgage sites in Hawai`i and Southeast Alaska selected to enable assessment of how floods might change in a future climate. Floods in Hawai`i and Southeast Alaska have led to loss of human life; damage to agricultural crops, cultural and biological resources, infrastructure, and property; th

SUTRA model used to evaluate long-term groundwater availability in the Waihee, Iao, and Waikapu aquifer systems, Maui, Hawaii

Groundwater levels have declined since the 1940s in the Wailuku area of central Maui, Hawaii, on the eastern flank of West Maui volcano, mainly in response to increased groundwater withdrawals. Available data since the 1980s also indicate a thinning of the freshwater lens and an increase in chloride concentrations of pumped water from production wells. These trends, combined with projected inc

WATRMod, a Water-budget accounting for tropical regions model--source code, executable file, and example files

This data release contains the source code, executable file, and example files for WATRMod, a Water-budget Accounting for Tropical Regions Model code that is documented in U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2022-1013 available at https://doi.org/10.3133/ofr20221013. The source code is written in the Fortran computer language. The model source code was compiled using Intel(R) Visual Fortran In

Seepage-run discharge measurements, November 15, 2021, He'eia Stream and 'Ioleka'a Stream, O'ahu, Hawai'i

This data release contains a comma-delimited ascii file of 16 discrete discharge measurements made at sites along selected reaches of He'eia Stream and 'Ioleka'a Stream, O'ahu, Hawai'i, on November 15, 2021. These discrete discharge measurements form what is commonly referred to as a "seepage run." The intent of the seepage run is to quantify the spatial distribution of streamflow along the reach

Seepage-run discharge measurements, September 8, 2021, He'eia Stream and 'Ioleka'a Stream, O'ahu, Hawai'i

This data release contains a comma-delimited ascii file of nine discrete discharge measurements made at sites along selected reaches of He'eia Stream and 'Ioleka'a Stream, O'ahu, Hawai'i, on September 8, 2021. These discrete discharge measurements form what is commonly referred to as a "seepage run." The intent of the seepage run is to quantify the spatial distribution of streamflow alon

Basin characteristic rasters used in the update of Hawaii StreamStats, 2022

In cooperation with the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has computed a series of basin characteristic rasters for Hawaii to be implemented into the USGS StreamStats application (https://streamstats.usgs.gov/ss/). The basin characteristics, along with geospatial datasets for watershed delineation published as a separate USGS data release (https://doi.

Geospatial datasets for watershed delineation used in the update of Hawaii StreamStats, 2022

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation, has compiled and processed a series of geospatial datasets for Hawaii to be implemented into the USGS StreamStats application (https://streamstats.usgs.gov/ss/). These geospatial datasets, along with basin characteristic datasets published as a separate USGS data release (https://doi.org/10.506

Provisional peak-streamflow information during March 8-17 at selected USGS gaging stations on the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, and Maui in the State of Hawaii

These data are preliminary or provisional and are subject to revision. They are being provided to meet the need for timely best science.

SUTRA model used to evaluate the effects of groundwater withdrawal and injection, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, Hawaii

A three-dimensional, variable-density solute-transport model (SUTRA) was developed to evaluate the effects of three selected withdrawal/injection scenarios on salinity of groundwater (as simulated at damselfly anchialine-pool habitat) and discharge of freshwater to the nearshore environment of Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park (KAHO), Hawaii. A base model was constructed using water-level,

MODFLOW-2005 and SWI2 models for assessing groundwater availability in the volcanic aquifers of Kauai, Oahu, and Maui, Hawaii

Steady-state numerical groundwater-flow models were constructed for the islands of Kaua'i, O'ahu, and Maui, Hawai'i. Separate models were created for each island using MODFLOW-2005 (Harbaugh, 2005) with the Seawater Intrusion (SWI2) package (Bakker and others, 2013), which allows simulation of freshwater and saltwater in ocean-island aquifers. The purpose of the models is to enable quantifica

Mean annual water-budget components for the Island of Maui, Hawaii, for a set of eight future climate and land-cover scenarios

These shapefiles represent the spatial distribution of mean annual water-budget components, in inches, for the Island of Maui, Hawaii for a set of eight future climate and land-cover scenarios. The future climate conditions used in the water-budget analyses were derived from two end-of-century downscaled climate projections including (1) a projected future climate condition representative of phase
