This is Kadavu Island, Fiji: Fluorvial studies of a volcanic island in the humid tropical South Pacific - Terry - 1999 - Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography
It investigates the properties of dewatering and the shape and processes of the brook channels on the Kadavu mountain ash volcano in the wet South Pacific Tropics and interpret the results in terms of the islands ecological properties such as ecology, regolithic soil, landscape, vegetation as well as climatic conditions. On islands and sub islands, the dewatering pattern is associated with the geography and geography of the latter Cenozoic volcano.
Stable tectonics and sea levels during the later Holocene and the largely unspoilt rain forest and savannah flora on the isle suggest that climate conditions influence the rate of river flow on Kadavu. In particular, stream-flow recordings show that tropic winds can have a major effect. Consideration is given to the impacts of possible increased cyclone growth in the South Pacific and man-made disturbances of plant life on Kadavu.
