Lahaina Wildfire Case Study

Using the HydroCAT-EP V2 to Study Coastal Water Quality Following the Lahaina Wildfire

We were honored to partner with Dr. Andrea Kealoha, Assistant Professor at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, Department of Oceanography along with her colleagues in rapidly developing a solution to monitor water quality following the Lahaina wildfire. Sea-Bird Scientific loaned a HydroCAT-EP V2 CTD to Dr. Kealoha and her team to monitor coastal water quality off Lahaina, Maui, after the devastating fire on August 8th, 2023. Of interest was understanding the impact of terrestrial runoff on the biogeochemical and oceanographic parameters at the Kahoma stream mouth, a major runoff outlet in Mala Wharf. The deployment took place over roughly 3 months from November 12th of 2023 to February 1st of 2024.


Quote from Dr. Andrea Kealoha, Assistant Professor

The HydroCAT-EP V2, Sea-Bird Scientific’s newest multiparameter CTD for moored applications, was chosen as the solution for this study due to its unique pumped flow technology, high data accuracy, robustness, and autonomous capability.

One key component to the success of this study was the parties involved, and the speed in which they agreed to participate and work out a solution. The necessity for holistic understanding of the implications from the Lahaina wildfire calls upon non-profit, institutional, and private sectors to all work collaboratively to deploy solutions that can give us the full picture.

Great thanks to Dr. Andrea Kealoha and the team at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, for your partnership and for enabling us to highlight your data to better protect our oceans.
