This dataset contains the gap analysis & spatial prioritization reports for the 4 States of the FSM, which includes:
1) Pohnpei State's Protected Area Network,
2) Chuuk State's Protected Area Network,
3) Yap State's Protected Area Network, and
4) Kosrae State's Protected Area Network.
The reports also include spatial prioritization analyses to identify priority areas to expand the existing network to fill representation gaps for each of the states.
The primary objective of this thesis is to investigate the reliability of water supplies for four atoll islands in Yap, Micronesia and examine how the reliability changes during drought and future precipitation patterns. The islands studied for this thesis include Eauripik (Eauripik Atoll), Falalop (Ulithi Atoll), Ifalik (Ifalik Atoll), and Satawal (a reef island). This study also aims to give water resource managers information and comprehensive tools to improve management of rainwater and groundwater resources.
