Student Research

The Coastal Geology Group is involved in several areas of scientific research on several islands. These areas include reef accretion history off the south coast of Molokai, historical shoreline and volumetric beach change at Kaanapali, Maui and Waikiki, Oahu, and historical shoreline analysis along the entire southwest, west and north coasts of Maui using soft copy ortho-photogrammetric techniques.
