DescriptionIn the late summer of 2007 the Institute for Pacific Islands Forestry (IPIF), which is part of the US Forest Service Pacific Southwestern Research Station, asked the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station's (RMRS) Air, Water and Aquatic Program's (AWA) Southwest Watershed Science Team for assistance in the establishing baseline data in the initial phase of a long term research project in the newly established Hawaiian Experimental Forest. RMRS and its predecessors have a history of the long standing watershed related research in the southwestern United States which was established experimental watersheds on volcanic rock over 50 years ago. Both systems, in Hawaii and Arizona, have mostly washes that have flashy precipitation events driven flows. Funding availability, personnel shortages and other ongoing collaborative projects between experimental forests of the research branches of the U.S. Forest Service facilitated the joint effort in this project.
