Title: Rainfall and Runoff in the Leeward Koolau Mountains, Oahu, Hawaii

Abstract: During the course of the investigation of the
ground-water resources of southern Oahu, made
by the U. S. Geological Survey in cooperation
with the State of Hawaii, a water-budget study
was used to estimate the quantity of ground
water available for development. The effective
use of this approach required a detailed knowledge
of rainfall and runoff in the area being
studied, especially in that part of it lying in the
wet Koolau mountains, where most of the
ground water is recharged. Past estimates for the
rainfall-runoff relationship in this environment
were rather speculative, and were based either
on extrapolations from areas of lower rainfall
or on experience obtained elsewhere. In the
present study it became obvious that this relationship
would have to be refined.
