Regional Geological Evaluation to Determine Additional Drilling Sites in the South Pacific Region The probability of scientific drilling in deep ocean areas of the South Pacific depends upon the strength and quality of drilling proposals made to the JOIDES selection committees and the amount of work done in anticipation of drilling. As well as earlier proposals for drill sites in Tonga, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and northern Papua New Guinea waters, TechSec has received copies of new proposals for drilling on the Ontong Java Plateau and in the western Solomon Sea. Seabeam swath mapping tracks were made across three of the proposed drill targets in Tonga during Leg 5 of the SEAPSO cruise. Site selections for drilling in 1988 are now being made Uncategorised (UC) Programme 1986

Baseline studies of inshore areas in Vanuatu for Coastal Development Programmes The survey was conducted to develop baseline data on the water quality and hydraulic characteristics of Mele Bay, and to evaluate four possible locations for a sewer outfall location near to Part Vila. Another objective was to develop some baseline data on Teuma Bay for its use as a marine fueling and storage depot. Two minor objectives were to locate a site suitable for collection of sea and swell data on Efate and to consider the environmental significance of a thermal discharge near Mangea Reef.
