Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Hawaii at Manoa, in cooperation with the County of Maui Department of Water Supply and the State of Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management, initiated a field data-collection program to provide information for evaluating how infiltration rates and soil hydrophobicity are dependent on plant species type within forested areas on the island of Maui. The field data collection is part of a study to quantify the impacts of high-priority non-native and dominant native plant species on freshwater availability throughout the State of Hawaii (https://archive.usgs.gov/archive/sites/hi.water.usgs.gov/studies/maui_eco/index.html). The overall objective of the study is to provide needed information [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data release is to document the quality-assured results of measurements collected from 226 individual measurement locations from 11 plots at four (4) study sites on the island of Maui from September 2017 to August 2018. The data were collected as part of a study to quantify the impacts of high-priority non-native and dominant native plant species on freshwater availability in the State of Hawaii.
