Pacific Islands Marine Data and Observations Training Workshop PI-GOOS via the OIP-based Coordinator facilitates regional access to a wide range of remotely-sensed oceanographic monitoring products. In many cases such products are freely available (e.g. NOAA’s coral beaching warning system) however regional awareness of these products and how they can be used is poor. In recognition of this, PI-GOOS partnered with SPSLCMP to jointly resource and organise a data awareness and training workshop in Nadi, Fiji, September 2008. Participants from all member States attended and a range of freely available products were demonstrated, including examples of how such products can be accessed and used to support in-country decision making, planning and environmental monitoring.
