VOICE OF THE SEA: Climate From the Mountains to the Past

In this episode, we profile some of the work done by the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center — who partners with communities across the Pacific to enact solutions that help people adapt to their changing climates. We talk to researchers on Maui studying how climate affects the amount of water trapped by high elevation forests, which are critical to the freshwater supply for island communities and wildlife. Then we’ll see how researchers are using the Hawaiian Newspaper Archives to study changes in weather patterns, and reveal previous El Nino events.
