Modeling the Hawaiian Shoreline

Present-day Island of Hawai’i coastal flood risk, with higher risk indicated in dark blue, was modeled to help the County of Hawai’i in their shoreline setback plan. Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly data from 2022 Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) indicate low temperatures in the East (red) to high in the West (orange). Inland, high probability locations of wetlands are shown in bright yellow and could aid in climate adaptation planning.
