|Abstract:||Long-term annual precipitation records from 31 stations on the
southeast and windward sides of the island of Hawaii were analyzed by a simple
linear regression technique for possible significant trends during the approximate
period 1900-1977. Records from stations along the windward side of the
island showed a general downward trend and along the southeast side of the
island a general upward trend. An explanation for these trends has not been
found; however, a shift in tradewind direction has been suggested as a possible
cause. Wind direction records are not complete enough to establish a relationship
between the two trends. The decrease in annual precipitation around the
Waimea area represents a significant effect on water resources of the area.
