Tsunami Monitoring Stations The IOC Representative informed TAG of the work the International Coordination Group for the Tsunami Warning System in the Pacific (ITSU) and the International Tsunami Information Center (ITIC) in the region. Tsunami stations and communication stations were also established in the SOPAC member countries of Papua New Guinea, Marshall Islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati, FSM, and Nauru. Although they are not yet member states of ITSU, FSM & Nauru respectively yet to be members of (CCOP/SOPAC) alongside the Marshall Islands at this stage. Hazards (H) Equipment 1987

Manganese nodules and cobalt-rich crusts in the EEZ's of the Cook Islands, Kiribati and Tuvalu, part 1: general introduction Manganese nodules and crusts in the South Pacific area have been the subject of much work, but most of this was done in the proposed International Seabed Area and until recently relatively little of it has been within 200 miles of land. However, with the increasing awareness by island states of the economic potential of their 200 mile EEZ's, more attention has been paid to possible mineral deposits in these areas, and reviews on this, emphasising nodules and/or crusts, have been written by Exon (1983), Cronan (1984) and Glasby et al, (1986). The data used in these reviews has been used again here; however, this report seeks to substantiate and update these reviews with new data collected in the region since 1983, mainly by Japanese and British workers.In the present study, an assessment of nodule and crust deposits in the EEZ's of Kiribati, Tuvalu and the Cook Islands is made on the basis of all available information Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Report
Training and Technical Assistance The exchange of expertise and experience among the energy agencies of the member countries in respect to specific energy sector activities. The training attachments have been identified by member countries as a priority activity and beneficial in skills evelopment, either directly during planned in-country technical assistance missions or training attachments at the SOPAC Energy Unit thereby enabling the exposure and the transfer of knowledge and experience in specialist areas, which are not normally addressed in this level of detail regional training workshops and courses.. The training attachments are focussed on specific energy sector requirements as identified and determined by the individual energy officers. Energy (E) Activity/Task 2002
