Welcome

HIGP is a multi-disciplinary institute conducting advanced research, technology development, teaching, workforce training, and service in cutting-edge oceanographic, atmospheric, geophysical, geological, and planetary science and engineering. We are a part of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the Mānoa (Honolulu) campus of the University of Hawai‘i. Our Institute is home to approximately 100 faculty members, staff, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students with access to state-of-the-art laboratories and instrumentation, research vessels, and far-ranging field sites. HIGP partners with the College of Engineering for satellite fabrication and launch through the Hawai‘i Space Flight Laboratory. Our expertise spans the globe from pole to pole, from the deep Earth interior to the upper atmosphere, and extends to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

We invite you to watch our HIGP video.

Lāna‘i Island Project Updates from Hawai‘i Groundwater & Geothermal Resources Center
Hawaii Groundwater & Geothermal Resources Center Nicole Lautze (HIGP Associate Researcher) and Don Thomas (HIGP Researcher) and project team from the Hawaii Groundwater & Geothermal Resources Center (HGGRC) are posting updates on current HGGRC groundwater research on Lāna‘i. This hydro-geo-chemical assessment of groundwater systems is taking place in Pālāwai Basin.

The HGGRC online repository provides historical and newly developed information relating to groundwater and geothermal resources in Hawai‘i. HGGRC strives to increase access to data regarding these resources, encourage research and innovation in water management and geothermal energy, provide an informational platform for the public, and supply policymakers with the necessary information to optimally utilize Hawai‘i's natural resources.
