Earth Science and Marine Geology Course- Instructors Report The principal objective of this course is to bring the participants, who come from a wide range of backgrounds and experience, to a common level of knowledge. Participants must be nominated by their governments and be employed at the technical or field assistant level in the general area of earth sciences either in the public or private sector. General (G) Report 1993
Wainimala Integrated Catchment Management Plan Workshop This workshop was the final step to consultancy work on the emergency flood protection works for the Wainimala River Catchment area CRP undertook with key Government of Fiji departments: the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) of the Ministry of Home Affairs, and the Land & Water Resource Management Unit of the Ministry of Agriculture, Sugar and Land Resettlement.

The objective is to help member countries compile data sets to support their claims. Maritime Boundaries (MB) Project 1997
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.

Assistance to Fiji's water resources SOPAC provided assistance to MRD with groundwater assessment and development, and to PWD with related water sector activities. As a follow-up to a trip to Kadavu an engineering report on a water supply system was provided to villages on Kadavu. Water and Sanitation (WS) Activity/Task 1999
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
Energy Information Awareness and Dissemination The publishing and distribution of energy information on a regular basis. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2005
Pig Farming Contamination of Water Resources The UNEP Global Programme for Protection of Marine Environment from Land-based sources of Pollution (GPA), Fiji Ministry of Agriculture and Department of Environment, and SOPAC were developing a demonstration and training facility for ecologically sound farming practices in close collaboration with Xiamen University (China). The goal of the project was to minimise nutrient release from pig waste through piloting technologies currently used in a Chinese “Model” Piggery and to gauge the usefulness of these in Fiji & the Pacific. The training was carried out from 20 - 27 January 2007. National counterpart staff trained in critical aspects of piggeries wastewater management through exchange with China. Demonstration piggery system in development in Fiji. Water and Sanitation (WS) Activity/Task 2007
