Groundwater Recharge

The USGS Pacific Islands Water Science Center conducts assessments of groundwater recharge in the State of Hawaiʻi and the U.S. Affiliated Pacific Islands. To estimate island-wide groundwater recharge, a water-budget model that uses a daily computational interval is typically developed for a variety of climate and land-cover scenarios.
