Bonriki Inundation Vulnerability Assessment (BIVA) - Groundwater borehole physical data

Time series for water level, conductivity and temperature for selected bores.

The Bonriki Inundation Vulnerability Assessment (BIVA) project aimed to improve understanding of the vulnerability of the Bonriki freshwater reserve to coastal hazards and climate variability and change. Improved knowledge of risks to this freshwater resource will enable better adaptation planning by the Government of Kiribati.
