The Laboratory for Marine Geosciences at the French University of the Pacific will host on May 12-16 in Tahiti, French Polynesia, the Second International Meeting of the Asian-Pacific Space Geodynamics (APSG) Program in collaboration with the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory (SAO) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The meeting will be held in conjunction with the dedication on May 12 of the Tahiti Geodetic Observatory on the grounds of the Laboratory.
The intent of the APSG Program is to develop international collaboration between scientists and experts in measurement techniques who are working in the Asian-Pacific region to (1) advance research in crustal motion, deformation, and sea level change; (2) provide basic information on the causes of and means of mitigating natural disasters; (3) enrich our knowledge of the dynamics of the Earth, (4) promote international scientific exchange and cooperation, and (5) contribute to raising the scientific research level in the developing countries. The topics of the meeting will include:
The objectives of the meeting are to:
The meeting is intended for scientists and measurement technique practitioners from universities, research institutions, and industry who are working in or planning to work in APSG related research in the geographic region and would like to benefit as a part of a multi-discipline, collaborative program.
