Hawaiian Islands Sentinel Site Cooperative


Sentinel Sites

The HISSC includes four priority sites: Midway Atoll and French Frigate Shoals in the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument; He‘eia watershed on the island of O‘ahu; and the Kona Coast of Hawai‘i Island. Each of these sites was chosen because of the innovative and critical research, outreach, education, and environmental monitoring related to sea-level rise and climate change taking place there.
