Multiple flooding sources threaten Honolulu’s infrastructure

In a study published in Scientific Reports, researchers at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, found in the next few decades, sea level rise will likely cause large and increasing percentages of land area to be impacted simultaneously by the three flood mechanisms. Further, they found direct marine inundation represents the least extensive–only three percent of the predicted flooding, while groundwater inundation represents the most extensive flood source.
