Cruises by the RV Nadir with submersible Nautile The RV Nadir carried out 3 major diving cruises with the submersible Nautile which represents the 2nd phase of the SEAPSO Project called SUBPSO, the result of a long effort which started at the Submersible Workshop held in Suva in 1985. The first campaign conducted by ORSTOM, SUBPSO 1, was devoted to the study of the Vanuatu fore-arc region and is related toODP targets (1-30 March). The second one on the Valu Fa Ridge, is called Nautilau. The first part, co- financed and co-directed by the FRG, was devoted to the study of the hydrothermal deposits, the second part being reserved for biological studies on hydrothermal faunas (3 April -13 May). The third cruise corresponds to a part of the STARMER project conducted in collaboration with IFREMER and ST A with the participation of scientist from different institutions. The goals are to study the structure and processes of hydrothermal deposits and related faunas of the North Fiji accretionary ridge (3 June -12 July). Cruises (C) Project 1989
Coastal Erosion Studies in the SOPAC Region It was proposed in the 12th Session. It was recommended that SPREP and CCOP/SOPAC were to continue to cooperate especially in areas of coastal management such as shoreline protection, environmental basline studies, development monitoring, and training. A workshop was planned for 1986 to be organized by Drs. R Howorth and E. Bird in association with the 15th Session of CCOP/SOPAC where coastal erosion in the region would be addressed. Investigations had been made in Tonga, Vanuatu, Cook Islands and Tuvalu jointly with SPREP. Individual member countries had their own reports. Human Resources Development (HRD) Workshop 1984
