Description The freshwater aquifer in the Pearl Harbor area on O'ahu, Hawai'i is the most important water resource of the island and constitutes a large proportion of its freshwater supply. The aquifer has a freshwater lens up to 304.8 m (1000 ft) thick, floating on top of a saline water zone. Mechanisms of groundwater movement are extremely complex because the upper boundary is confined near the coast and phreatic inland, while the lower boundary is nowhere confined. In this study, regional groundwater...
