Hawai‘i Groundwater Recharge Tool

June 30, 2019

The Hawai‘i Groundwater Recharge Tool allows users to evaluate the potential effects of land-cover and climate changes on groundwater recharge. This website provides a baseline estimate of recharge representing recent conditions of precipitation (1978–2008 average) and land cover (2010). Users can change land cover and rainfall conditions to evaluate the effects on groundwater recharge. Results will be displayed as on-screen maps, and users will be given options to generate interpretive graphics or export results in various formats. Results from this website are based on soil water-balance models. This is a pilot website that is currently limited to the island of O‘ahu, but the website has been designed to be expandable so that other islands and conditions can be added in the future.
