Hawaiian Islands probability of excess rainfall conditions under current (2002-2012) and future (2090-2099) scenarios

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

One of the determinants of runoff is the occurrence of excess rainfall events where rainfall rates exceed the infiltration capacity of soils. To help understand runoff risks, we calculated the probability of excess rainfall events across the Hawaiian landscape by comparing the probability distributions of projected rainfall frequency and land cover-specific infiltration capacity. We characterized soil infiltration capacity based on different land cover types (bare soil, grasses, and woody vegetation) and compared them to the frequency of large rainfall events under current and future (pseudo-global warming) climate scenarios. Here we provide a raster stack that contain the probability of excess rainfall exceeding infiltration capacity in each grid cell at 90 m in two bands for current (2002-2012) and future (2090-2099) scenarios.
