Pacific Drought Knowledge Exchange (PDKE) factsheets
Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park
Drought on our landscapes can influence future vegetation cover, non-native species invasions, watershed function, and fire behavior. Therefore, the PDKE project seeks to address the critical need for scientists to produce locally relevant, timely, accessible, and actionable science products that managers can use to adapt to potentially drier and hotter climates. So, the PDKE was formed with PI-CASC funding to co-produce drought data and products with project partners, like the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park (HAVO).
These factsheets were produced specifically for HAVO:
