Recreational Seascapes: Integrating Human and Mechanical Observations on Hawaiʻi Island


Release Date


Seascapes symbolize both the physical dimensions of ocean and coastal areas, as well as the meanings humans ascribe to their observations, interactions, and relationships to the sea. In Hawaiʻi, seascapes are particularly important given that the ocean contributes considerably to the well-being of coastal communities which are vulnerable to climate change and other human pressures. Monitoring and understanding how these areas are changing requires fully knowing the relationship between physical and cultural dynamics. Mechanical sensors in the marine environment monitor wave regimes, streamflow, rainfall, and other parameters that scientists and managers use to predict the effects and implications of climate change, yet objective data [...]
