Regional Geotechnical Investigations for Coastal Development The objectives of the activity was to conduct field investigations, hammer refraction, including seismic surveys, drilling and sampling programs, where information is required on foundation conditions in cavernous limestones or weak calcareous and organic silts; to establish geotechnical hazards for appropriate design of coastal structures or land reclamation projects; Cooperate with ORSTOM on a new program for reef drilling on Tarawa, Kiribati for paleoclimate and possible geotechnical investigations. Coastal Processes (CP) Activity/Task 1996
Economic Potential of Renewable Energy Full feasibility studies of applicable / possible renewable energy projects for the region. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2006
CHARM training manual developed and training delivered in member countries. CHARM implementation guide and training manual completed and national training conducted in Fiji, Samoa,Tonga and Vanuatu. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Activity/Task 2006
Swath Mapping along the Fiji Fracture Zone: HMAS Cook HMAS Cook carried out swath mapping along the Fiji Fracture Zone and across the northern end of the Peggy Ridge and northern Lau Basin in August. The Seabeam multi-transducer echo sounding system on the HMAS Cook was a valuable complementary tool to GLORIA. The objectives of the survey were to obtain GLORIA sonic images and mosaics and Seabeam bathymetry of the seafloor in the areas selected for the survey. Uncategorised (UC) Mapping 1989
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
Regional workshop on Maritime Boundaries Negotiations The purpose of the workshop was to build the capacity of senior government officials of Pacific States to negotiate their country’s shared maritime boundaries and declare their Exclusive Economic Zone Boundary. The 5 day workshop (3-7 October) was held at the Hotel Kitano Tusitala, Apia, Samoa. Maritime Boundaries (MB) Workshop 2005
Study of beaches on the Southwest Shoreline of Suva Peninsula, Viti Levu This study focuses on the best developed of those beaches, Nasese beach, on the southwest of the Suva Peninsula. Generally, the study aims to give a clearer understanding of the uniqueness of the Nasese beach relative to the other beaches along the peninsula. A series of three sand samples was taken along one of the profiles, and a further two samples were taken updrift on a mid-beach location. The four moment measures - mean, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis - were selected for studying changes in the sand size distribution. Coastal Processes (CP) Study 1996
Wave Energy Resource Assessment Wave energy resource being monitored and data retrieved and analyzed. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2004
Awareness, Community Participation and Gender and Pacific WASH Coalition Provision to member countries of a campaign strategy for World Water Day with activities, publication material, articles for newspapers and financial support for advertising incountry. Coordination and facilitation of Pacific WASH Coalition Water and Sanitation (WS) Activity/Task 2010
Preparation of Nautical Charts in the Northern Lau Islands region The government of Fiji requested the Government of Japan for technical cooperation in the study on the Preparation of nautical charts in the northern Lau islands region in the Republic of Fiji. The objective of the study was to prepare Fiji nautical charts each on the scale of 1/150 000, covering the Northern Lau islands region. The work in the first year (phase 1) of the study was conducted from 13 January to 30 March 1995. Pursuant to phase 1, the work in the second year (Phase II) of the study was conducted from 13 June 1995 to March 1996. General (G) Technical Assistance 1996
