Note to visitors:

The PIFSC is located in the NOAA Inouye Regional Center (IRC) on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor. Ford Island is a U.S. Navy base and therefore access is restricted. Visitors to the NOAA IRC are welcome, but there are procedures to follow before access can be granted. If you wish to visit the facility or planning to meet with PIFSC staff, please contact PIFSC staff at least 7 days in advance of your visit to make arrangements and familiarize yourself with access protocols to Ford Island and the facility.
