Age Dating of Seamounts Age dating of seamounts were completed and dates were ascertained for many of the central Pacific Seamounts, most of which are 0 to 30 million years. The Czenozoic age island groups which have been dated include; Austral-Cook, Tuamotu, Caroline, Guadalupe, Louisville, Kodiak-Bowie, Samoa, Line Cross Trend, Marques, Society, Gambier and Hawaii-Empreor. The Mesozoic-age (67-119 m.y) include; the Marshalls, Line Islands, S.W Hawaii and Musician Seamount Groups. Uncategorised (UC) Activity/Task 1984
Applications Support in GIS and Remote Sensing SOPAC continues to promote ICT applications using GIS and Remote Sensing tools. It played a major role in conducting a regional GIS&RS User’s Conference in Fiji where GIS&RS users presented their applications and exchanged ideas. The Secretariat is now developing capabilities in ArcGIS to provide support specifically to the north Pacific member countries. Geographical Information Systems/Remote Sensing (GIS) Training 2007
Offshore Minerals Survey - Nodules and Crusts Opinion of the Australian representative that sufficient work had been done except in Kiribati and Marshall Islands and Federal states of Micronesia and should be considered as possible sites for further study. Techsec noted that the PAC database for Mn nodules had now been updated. Following reccomendations of last year's Annual Session, maps have been produced to show stations, distribution, abundance and grades. Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Activity/Task 1991
Regional Coordination of Law of the Sea Related Issues in the SOPAC Region To advise member countries on legal and policy issues relating to delimitation and the continental shelf, marine scientific research, offshore minerals exploration and mining. Further, to monitor law of the sea issues of relevance to SOPACs work programme. Maritime Boundaries (MB) Activity/Task 2000
