Voice of the Sea: Sea Level Rise and the Ala Wai Canal

In this episode, we head inland to take a look at how rising sea level will affect our infrastructure, aquifers, and fresh water supplies. Researchers from the University of Hawaiʻi Sea Grant College Program and the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology are using King Tides as a window into future ocean conditions, which will have dramatic effects on our island life.
