Hawaiʻi EPSCoR Track 1 ʻIke Wai Project
A novel multilayer transport mechanism of freshwater from onshore to offshore in Hawaiʻi was discovered using high-resolution marine CSEM imaging [Attias2020], the first marine CSEM study that maps offshore submarine freshwater in a volcanic setting. This paper received more than 254 million views internationally.

One of the main goals of Hawaiʻi EPSCoR is to support research infrastructure through shared-use equipment. Several higher education institutions across the state benefit from state-of-the-art equipment purchases using Hawaiʻi EPSCoR funding, including Mana, a High Performance Computing cluster. These equipment purchases will remain available for faculty and students at their home universities and will support their research projects for years to come.
