Anna Mikkelsen

Anna Mikkelsen is a Sea Grant fellow at University of Hawai‘i, and is currently pursuing for her master’s degree in the department of Earth Sciences. Her studies focus on coastal processes, specifically beach erosion, and continues a monitoring effort at Waikīkī combining tools such as photogrammetry and remote sensing to better understand the short-term changes in beach morphology. Anna was born and raised in Denmark, and received her BS in Marine Science at University of Hawai‘i at Hilo.

Noah Paoa Kannegiesser

Noah Paoa Kannegiesser is a MS student in Coastal Geology at the University of Hawaii. Noah is using data from a ROMS simulation assimilating re-analysis of the region surrounding the Hawaiian Islands to estimate inundation probabilities along the coast of ‘Oahu in different scenarios of higher sea levels. He is also working on simulating coastal inundation (using the bathtub method) on the island of Rapa Nui. Noah received his BS degree in Geology from the University of Oregon in Summer 2018.
