About 70 percent of the 1.36 million population lives on Oahu (which includes the capital city of Honolulu). Major industries in Hawaii include tourism, government (including military), and agriculture. The Hawaii Volcanic-Rock Aquifer study will focus on the largest and most populated islands — Kauai, Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island (island of Hawaii).
