EPSCoR Hawai‘i: ‘Ike Wai
Hawai‘i depends exclusively on local water. The multi-disciplinary ‘Ike Wai project aims to acquire, develop, and provide a wide-variety of data and models that increase our knowledge and understanding of Hawai‘i’s fresh water resources, aspiring to address the grand challenge of water sustainability. In my role in this project, I especially focus on the geophysical element of puzzle. Using a wide-variety of data types and imaging & inversion techniques, I aim to provide quantitative characterization of the subsurface of Hawai‘i, as well as geophysical monitoring of Hawai‘i’s subsurface fluids, pore-fluid properties, and flow patterns. For more information: EPSCoR Hawai'i.
