Delineation of sediment in time and space The purpose of the project was to delineate distribution of sediment bodies of different ages and produce stratigraphic and isopach maps of the region. Also to establish from detailed stratigraphic analysis of the various sedimentary bodies ( facies relationships, paleoenvironments, sediment provenance). Project was proposed in the 9th Session & revised in the 12th Session. Uncategorised (UC) Assessment 1984

Geological Map of New Hebrides The geological map was produced at a scale of 1: 1 000 000. Uncategorised (UC) Map/Chart 1976
Report on the Circum Pacific Map Project In 1977 Mr R. Richmond, acting Chairman of the Southwest Quadrant Panel of the Circum-Pacific Map Project, requested through CCOP/SOPAC assistance from the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany to compile data for the Project. Uncategorised (UC) Report 1978
Investigation of the metalliferous mud potential in the active volcanic arc and the back arc of Vanuatu (than New Hebrides) The aim of this project was to sample and analyse sediments in submarine basins adjacent to onshore and near-shore geothermal activity. This is because onshore and nearshore geothermal emanations are known in a number of areas of New Hebrides and their location adjacent to submarine basinal features makes possible a build up of metal-rich concentrations in the seabed sediments.

Report on the Compilation of Tectonic Elements of the Southwest Pacific A report on the compilation of Chart 2 of the Geophysical Atlas of the Southwest Pacific, i.e. "Tectonic Elements of the Southwest Pacific" Uncategorised (UC) Report 1984
Bathymetric mapping of the New Hebrides (Vanuatu) island arc and the adjacent deep sea floor Bathymetric data had been collected by the Royal Navy, IFP and ORSTOM and therefore this activity was to produce bathymetric maps maps at 1 :500,000 scale, out of these data. In addition, the economic potential of this activity was to provide topographic maps of the sea floor for the preliminary evaluation of mineral distributions and for extrapolation on-land geology adjacent offshore areas.
