Title: September - Contemplating the Final Evacuation
Description: Water supply is most vulnerable in the atoll States of the Pacific. There it is sensitive to precipitation patterns and changes in storm tracks. Captured rainwater is stored in cisterns; the only backup reserve for these islands is a thin wedge of fresh groundwater that sits on top of the saltwater lens.
