Ka Pili Kai Spring 2013

The title of this publication, Ka Pili Kai, has several meanings including “where the land meets the sea,” “the link with the sea,” and “things connected with the sea.” This title embodies our overarching mission which stresses that what happens on the ‘äina (land) directly affects the health of the wai (water) and coastline. This focus drives the research projects that we fund and, in turn, the fascinating projects that the students in our Sea Grant Graduate Trainee Program are tackling. In this issue we are proud to take you to the shores of the Big Island to learn about the importance of studying the water quality in Hilo Bay; to the shores of Maui to better understand how groundwater discharge affects the nearshore ecosystem and future land use practices; to the windward side of O‘ahu to glimpse the important heritage surrounding the He‘eia wetlands and how science and cultural practices intersect; to Washington D.C. to meet the current Knauss Fellows; and much more.
