Time series data of water surface elevation and wave height were acquired at ten locations for 517 days (in three separate deployments) off the north coast of Roi-Namur Island, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands, in support of a study on the coastal circulation patterns and the transformation of surface waves over the coral reefs. The relative placement of sensors on the reefs were as follows: ROI13W1 and ROI13E1 – fore reef ROI13W2 and ROI13E2 – outer reef flat ROI13W1 and ROI13E1 – middle reef flat ROI13W1 and ROI13E1 – inner reef flat

A three-dimensional, groundwater model (SUTRA) was developed to understand the effects of seawater washover on the freshwater lens of Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands. The model was calibrated by using observation data collected from 1990 through 1991 and 2008 through 2010. This USGS data release contains all of the input and output files for the simulations described in the associated journal article "Seawater-flooding events and impact on freshwater lenses of low-lying islands: controlling factors, basic management and mitigation" by Stephen B. Gingerich, Clifford I. Voss, and Adam G. Johnson, Journal of Hydrology (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2017.03.001). This data release also...

This data release includes the XBeach input data files used to evaluate the importance of explicitly modeling sea-swell waves for runup. This was examined using a 2D XBeach short wave-averaged (surfbeat, XB-SB) and a wave-resolving (non-hydrostatic, XB-NH) model of Roi-Namur Island on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of Marshall Islands. Results show that explicitly modelling the sea-swell component (using XB-NH) provides a better approximation of the observed runup than XB-SB (which only models the time-variation of the sea-swell wave height), despite good model performance of both models on reef flat water levels and wave heights. However, both models under-predict runup peaks. The difference between XB-SB and...

The zipped folder (Monthly_water_budget_Roi-Namur_2000-12.zip) associated with this metadata file contains 156 polygon shapefiles. Collectively, the 156 shapefiles contain spatially distributed estimates of groundwater recharge and other water-budget components, in inches, for Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands, for each month and year during 2000–12. The name of each shapefile indicates the year and month of the water-budget components contained in the shapefile. The month-year estimates of recharge and other water-budget components summarized in each shapefile were summed from daily water-budget components that were computed using a water-budget model. The equations of the water-budget...

Projected future wave-driven flooding depths on Roi-Namur Island on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands for a range of climate-change scenarios. This study utilized field data to calibrate oceanographic and hydrogeologic models, which were then used with climate-change and sea-level rise projections to explore the effects of sea-level rise and wave-driven flooding on atoll islands and their freshwater resources. The overall objective of this effort, due to the large uncertainty in future emissions (and thus climate change scenarios) that is largely irreducible, was to reduce risk and increase island resiliency by providing model simulations across a range of plausible future conditions. This...
