Regional Information Exchange At the 1985 meeting of CCOP/SOPAC and STAR, a need was recognised for the exchange of information, particularly on scheduled research cruises, to fully develop future research programmes in the region. The objectives were: (i) to collect detailed information on planned research cruises from institutions and agencies concerned, as well as from STAR National Contact Points, and disseminate it to interested parties on a regular basis at least once a year, and possibly twice a year; (ii) to compile a list of ongoing and planned marine geology projects in the region, with details of objectives, methodology and participants, and to disseminate it to interested parties; (iii) to prepare up-to-date information on planned research projects/cruises in the region for publication in the CCOP/SOPAC newsletters (iv) to promote a Workshop on Management of Marine Science Data and Information to be convened in the near future.
