motion accelerographs Uncategorised (UC) Equipment 1983
Seismological Network (21 stations) in Vanuatu reaches conclusion Monitoring Stations for Seismic activities. Hazards (H) Equipment 1987
Field Survey Equipment Support for Work Programme An inventory on the equipment held maintained. Regular operational maintenance of field survey equipment completed. Commissioning of new field equipment completed. Pre and post mobilisation of field survey activities [all scheduled field activities across all programmes] provided. New equipment, software changes and new developments for existing equipment and, new field survey techniques monitored. Coastal Processes (CP) Equipment 2007
Application of high resolution space borne radar image data In January 2009 two large troughs of low pressure passed across Nadi resulting in extensive flooding.SOPAC ordered 3 metre resolution satellite radar data, which were downloaded 12 hours after recording. The processing of maps at 1:10,000 scale to show the flooded areas required 4½ days to prepare. Through new methods of radar analysis this could be reduced to about 2 hours. Geographical Information Systems/Remote Sensing (GIS) Equipment 2009
Installation of the Niue Map Server (EDF 9) Under the EDF9 project of reducing vulnerabilities of pacific islands countries, a map server was installed for Niue followed by relevant training in its use, maintenance, updates. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Equipment 2004
Workshop Support to the Regional Data Centre Electronics Workshop also assists the staff of the Regional Data Centre in the repair and maintenance of computer hardware and network cabling. Uncategorised (UC) Equipment 1995
Equipment Maintenance, Servicing and Upgrade On-going maintenance, repair, servicing and upgrading of survey equipment to keep them in a state of readiness for deployment as and when required. The Program supports an Electronics Workshop and a Mechanical Workshop for repair and maintenance of survey equipment. Survey equipment needs to be maintained to a high standard, not only for accuracy, but also for reliability, as they undergo rugged treatment when they are freighted to member countries and operate under extreme conditions in the field. Uncategorised (UC) Equipment 1995
New Equipment Maintain up-to-date information on new equipment developments and assist in the purchase of new equipment to maintain an effective field operating capability as required to carry out the SOPAC Work Program. Uncategorised (UC) Equipment 1995
Tsunami Monitoring Stations The IOC Representative informed TAG of the work the International Coordination Group for the Tsunami Warning System in the Pacific (ITSU) and the International Tsunami Information Center (ITIC) in the region. Tsunami stations and communication stations were also established in the SOPAC member countries of Papua New Guinea, Marshall Islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati, FSM, and Nauru. Although they are not yet member states of ITSU, FSM & Nauru respectively yet to be members of (CCOP/SOPAC) alongside the Marshall Islands at this stage. Hazards (H) Equipment 1987
Procurement of ICT Equipment for Meteorology Division To advise and deliver suitable equipment for the Meteorology Division of the Apia Observatory. Information Communications and Technology (ICT) Equipment 1999
