Cover Story (view full-size image): Groundwater resources of low-lying atoll islands are threatened due to changes in rainfall, wave climate, and sea level. This study explores how these forcings affect the limited groundwater resources on Roi-Namur, of the Marshall Islands. As part of a 16-month study, a rarely recorded overwash event occurred and the aquifer’s response was measured. While the small-scale overwash event returned to pre-overwash conditions within 30 days, the collected data also suggests that degradations in freshwater resources are likely to increase in severity in the future due to sea-level rise.
