Listing Projects - Country of Solomon Islands (1468)

TitleDescriptionCategoryTypeProject Year
Earthquake Hazard Mapping in the South Pacific To evaluate earthquake hazards in 3 of the most seismically active SOPAC member countries (Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Tonga) and produce earthquake hazard zoning maps and to incorporate the results in the national Building Codes of these countries where applicable. Hazards (H) Project 1991
Training and Technical Assistance PIC Nationals better informed with increased capacity to manage their energy sectors. Energy (E) Technical Assistance 2007
Attendance at Meetings Institutional training outside the region has been an ongoing activity for the past few years as the need for specialised training for individuals is becoming necessary. Two types of activity occur. One is participation in specialised workshops, conferences and pre- and post-cruise meetings; the second is to go to an organisation for training for periods of up to three months. Human Resources Development (HRD) Activity/Task 1994
Field Support Workshop staff assisted in three field trips during the first half of 1995. Uncategorised (UC) Technical Assistance 1995
Assessment of auriferous terraces, big bay area, Espiritu Santo To assess its potential for placer gold. This report summarizes all known placer occurrences in the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Fiji. A historical background, geology and production figures if any, for each occurrence are documented. Minerals (M) Activity/Task 1992
Geological mapping of the Solomon Islands. Production of geological maps at the scale of 1:50,000 and further maps would be published as the survey progressed. Uncategorised (UC) Project Ongoing
Maintance of Current Library Services The Library is to provide access to geological information for staff of the geological departments in the member countries, the Secretariat staff, researchers with related interests and other users of this kind of information in the Pacific region. Current library services will be maintained, especially reference services for Secretariat staff and member countries. Uncategorised (UC) Activity/Task 1995
GIS for Power Utilities Workshop A GIS Power Utilities Workshop was conducted at Fiji Electricity Authority Engineering Division, Lautoka for 4 days (14 - 17 April ) was attended by participants from the Fiji Islands (Fiji Electricity Authority), Solomon Islands (Solomon Islands Electricity Authority) and Tonga (Tonga Electric Power Board and Tonga Water Authority. The objective of the workshop was to demonstrate the improved management capabilities through use of GIS and in particular the use of remotely- sensed data fro rectified image backdrops for enhancing visual representation of assets in relation to geographic features. Energy (E) Workshop 1998
Detrital Minerals in the Solomon Islands Review of the data for favourable targets for neashore gold in the gold bearing sands at Matepona River mouth. This site has high potential for placer deposits. The objective of the review was to establish the progressive development of the project and decide on the next phase. Minerals (M) Activity/Task 1994
GIS Photobase Backdrops and DTMS: Pacific Cities Project In the short term the greatest need is to acquire an orthophoto base and digital terrain model (DTM) for the GIS database for each city. The underlay of an orthophoto base as backdrop will have the advantage of moving the GIS into the realm of many more users, giving it far more universal applications. As well as enabling a display of cities in three-dimensions, the DTM is essential as a numerical base for modelling and analysing the effects of tsunami, storm surge, sea-level rise and cyclonic winds. Acquisition of this photogrammetric data is most cost-effectively undertaken in close succession in the maximum number of cities because of the costs of deploying aircraft. Funding for such an element of Pacific Cities would therefore require a large, lump-sum commitment, but would have a very visible, and useful, outcome. With the aid of the French Pacific Fund, and in conjunction with A2EP in New Caledonia, arrangements have been made to obtain aerial photography for Suva, suitable for digital processing, before the end of 1998. Further funds have been set aside to prepare a DTM for Suva early 1999. Hazards (H) Activity/Task 1999
