SPC Geoscience Division



For twenty-six years scientists from around the world have provided advice and support to countries and territories in the South Pacific Region through STAR, the Science, Technology and Resources Network.

The most recent meeting, an integral part of the SPC/SOPAC Division meeting, took place in Nadi last week (16th – 21st October).

STAR Chair Dr John Collen, Associate Professor, School of Geography, Environmental and Earth Sciences, Victoria University, Wellington NZ, said that STAR was founded in 1983 in collaboration with the International Oceanographic Commission, so that the international scientific community could provide advice to SOPAC.
