As a part of the National Coastal Assessment (NCA), the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) of US EPA initiated a pilot study of the estuarine resources of the main islands of Hawaii in 2002. This study provides the first probabilistic assessment of the condition of the estuaries and bays of Hawaii. The objectives of the program were: to assess the condition of estuarine resources of Hawaii based on a range of indicators of environmental quality using an integrated survey design; to establish a baseline for evaluating how the condition of the estuarine resources of Hawaii changes with time; to develop and validate improved methods for use in future coastal monitoring and assessment efforts in Hawaii; and to transfer the technical approaches and methods for designing, conducting and analyzing data from probability based environmental assessments to the state of Hawaii.
