The goals of this joint U.S. Geological Survey, University of Hawaii, University of Guam, University of Texas, and East-West Center study were to 1 provide basic understanding about water resources for U.S. Department of Defense installations on Guam and 2 assess the resulting effect of sea-level rise and a changing climate on freshwater availability, on the basis of historic information, sea-level rise projections, and global-climate model temperature and rainfall projections. Downscaled regional climate models, informed by a multimodel ensemble of global climate models provided projections of future climate conditions for Guam. These projected climate conditions provided input to surface-water and groundwater models developed for Guams hydrology. Guams water resources in a future climate condition 208099 are projected to diminish relative to the recent climate condition.
