Abstract

Island ecosystems in the southwest Pacific region are noted for their fragility and susceptibility to degradation, particularly in regard to groundwater systems. In general, island aquifers are relatively free of major pollution problems, but human development suggests that potential long-term dangers exist. The character of groundwater resource development on small islands in this region is reviewed with regard to geologic framework, water availability, recharge, and aquifer risk. Norfolk Island serves as a case study of aquifer vulnerability on a small volcanic island. The research and training needs for the long-term protection of island water resources are briefly outlined.
