Guam is a strategic location for the United States of America, which is located in the western Pacific. Guam’s economy is mainly supported by tourism and military related activities. Because of buildup activities and increasing population of tourists in the following few years, much pressure has been imposed on water resources and water quality in Guam. With about 5,000 marines relocated to Guam from Okinawa in the next few years, the Finegayan area will be a concerned area for buildup activities. Therefore, the study area for the project is located in the Finegayan area, and the research concentrates on application of LiDAR data to figure out sinkholes in the Finegayan area, and application of GIS in evaluating salinity levels from drinking wells, and locating wells with problems with salinity in the study area. More concerns are focused on relationship between sinkholes and salinity, and whether sinkholes affect salinity levels in the study area.
