Abstract: Average annual erosivity (EI) values were developed using 20 years of hourly precipitation data from weather stations located on each of 10 Pacific Basin islands. Average annual erosivity values were generally greater (as much as 3 1/2 times in some cases) then the largest values noted for any mainland location.
