Abstract: Prepared by the SOPAC Secretariat for the Pacific Islands Regional Ocean Forum held in early 2004 at the University of the South Pacific, this report summarises the major areas of work conducted by SOPAC. These include: maritime boundaries delimitation; research into deep sea non-living marine resources; nearshore non-living resources (aggregates); mapping and monitoring coastal areas; monitoring and observing the open ocean; modelling using complex oceanographic and meteorological datasets; observing the hydrological cycle (HYCOS); desalination; coastal water quality; ocean-based renewable energy resources; environmental vulnerability; natural hazards; capacity building; resource economics; and data and knowledge management (dynamic mapping). For each of these areas an explanation of relevant issues, their current status and an account of how the issues are being addressed is given.
