PODCASTS

Podcast #1: Fish Flow

Meet Dr. Brian Bowen and Michael Hoban and learn about their project tracking important aquaculture fish species from egg production to the reefs where they settle and grow. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #2: Loko iʻa

Meet Dr. Rob Toonen and Kaleonani Hurley and hear about their study of historical harvesting practices of crab populations in Hawaiian fishponds (or loko i'a) and the applicability to today's management practices. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #3: Urban understandings and changing coasts

Meet Dr. Daniele Spirandelli and Theresa Dean and delve into the vulnerability of Hawaiʻi's wastewater infrastructure to a changing climate. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #4: Is it freshwater or saltwater?

Meet Dr. Henrietta Dulai and Trista McKenzie and learn about their efforts to map submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) into Kāneʻohe Bay to measure the nutrient flow from groundwater compared with streams. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #5: The two-to-three-day rule

Meet Dr. Craig Nelson and Krissy Remple and hear about their attempts to develop a new rapid, cost-effective tool to determine water quality where groundwater contamination might occur. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #6: Filter feeders

Meet Dr. Brian Popp and Leilei Shih as they describe their project to evaluate the role of a recent invasive sponge population in Kāneʻohe Bay--for bad or good. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #7: Hawaiian water

Meet Dr. Michael Roberts and Nathan DeMaagd and discover the intricacies of the economics of shifting water demands in the face of climate change. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #8: Humans, water, and rocks

Meet Dr. Craig Glenn, Michael Mathioudakis, and Daniel Dores as they share their work on using drones and water sampling to track groundwater contaminants flowing into Kāneʻohe Bay, Oʻahu. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #9: Fish stress out, too!

Meet Dr. Andre Seale and Dr. Fritzie Brady and learn about their experiments to examine physiological responses in grown tilapia to hormone and pesticide exposure in their early developmental stages. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #10: Carbon and the ocean

Meet Dr. Eric DeCarlo and Lucie Knor and discover their efforts over years to track carbon dioxide levels in the coastal waters of Hawaiʻi and how coastal life and coral reefs are being effects by the changes. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #11: Beach loss, property gain?

Meet Dr. John Lynham and Mel Accad and hear about their ongoing study exploring the economic effects of sea walls on property values over decades. Read more about their project here.

Podcast #12: Our Project in Hawaiʻi’s Intertidal

Meet Dr. Joanna Philippoff and Florybeth LaValle and hear about the OPIHI project studying the intertidal zone ecosystems through time with the help of local students and community members. Read more about the project here.

Podcast #13: Research…beyond shallow waters…

Meet Dr. Rob Toonen and Lindsay Veazey as they discuss their project to map deep coral distributions in the mesophotic zone to understand these unusual ecosystems better and develop a predictive tool to determine where other reefs may lie. Read more about their project here.
