Ka Pili Kai Fall 2010

As the only state entirely surrounded by the ocean, Hawai‘i faces numerous unique challenges. As history has shown, coastal hazards such as tsunamis, coastal storms, hurricanes, and chronic coastal erosion have the potential to devastate our coastal communities and cause widespread loss and destruction. In this issue we are pleased to share just a few of the significant accomplishments we have made in this area in recent months, including our work on Hawai‘i’s tsunami inundation maps; the implementation of the NOAA Coastal Storms Program in the Pacific Islands region; efforts to map areas prone to coastal erosion; outreach and training efforts in the Republic of the Marshall Islands to assess local vulnerability to sea-level rise; and much more.
