Abstract: The four water resources research institutes in the Islands Region of the United States Geological Surveys National Institutes for Water Resources program will convene a conference in Honolulu, Hawaii during December 2015. The conference will be a follow-up to a conference held by the institutes in November 2011 to provide a platform for discussion between water resources researchers and others on existing water resources issues facing tropical islands and those issues that are likely to develop in the future particularly due to the anticipated changes in climate.
