NOAA Water Information for Hawaii: Resources to Support Decision-Making

by Dr. Karen Bradford1 and Ms. Brenna Sweetman2

NOAA National Water Center at the University of Alabama1and NOAA Office for Coastal Management at the National Water Center, Alabama2

Water resources stakeholders need access to consistent, high space and time-resolution, integrated water analyses, predictions, and data to address critical unmet information and service gaps related to floods, droughts, water quality, water availability, and climate change. A variety of tools are available to help address these gaps including the National Water Model (NWM), the Digital Coast platform’s resources, and the Adapting Stormwater Management for Coastal Floods product. The NWM is a continental scale hydrologic model that forecasts key components of the water cycle. The Digital Coast offers a collection of data, tools, and trainings for the coastal management community to address coastal and marine issues. The Adapting Stormwater Management for Coastal Floods product is a self-guided learning resource created to help communities better understand and assess possible impacts on stormwater systems. This presentation will introduce these products and services that can help inform decision-making in Hawai‘i.
