Provide training to use the database system. Provide a regional archive to store individual country data as a backup copy and for regional use. Note that SOPAC is currently acting as Interim Secretariat to the PWA (Regional Project). Water and Sanitation (WS) Activity/Task 1997
An Investigation of Lithospheric Properties by Teleseismic Studies in the Samoa- Tonga- Cook Islands Region Objective of the study is to collect data on earthquakes for upper mantle studies by setting up a temporary seismic recording station initially on Rarotonga and later at other sites. This study is defined by special project 2-2 (Energy Release & Seismicity), 1975 IOC IDOE Suva Workshop, 4th Session Proceedings. Hazards (H) Study 1976
In-country seminar in basic earth science/coastal processes and coastal geology A re-survey of the beach profiles along the Mulinu'u and across the Cyclone Ofa coral banks was carried out by most of the participants of the December 1993 Coastal Monitoring Seminar. Human Resources Development (HRD) Seminar 1994
Establish a data management system for storage and retrieval of resource data and information To design and set up an archive storage, retrieval, and reproduction system for marine geological, geophysical data, and general oceanographic data from Samoan waters that will meet Samoa's needs; and to train Samoans to operate the system. In addition, this activity assisted in the development of Samoa's marine resources and use of the marine environment Data Management (DM) Technical Assistance 1984
