Coastal Inundation Forecast Demonstration Project (CIFDP)

The Project is focused on developing innovative forecast solutions and ocean monitoring for Pacific Island countries and territories. This project was developed and tested in Fiji in areas with low-lying coastlines at risk of coastal inundation. Our Oceanography team delivered one of the key components of the CIFDP project focused on developing swell-driven coastal inundation forecasting and modelling.

Guidelines to strengthen tsunami risk knowledge in the Pacific

Geoscience Australia (GA) and the Pacific Community (SPC) partnered towards the development of a peer-reviewed guideline to assess tsunami inundation hazards in the Pacific Island region. The guideline leverages and optimizes the use of GA's 2018 Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard  Assessment (PTHA18) and aims to provide member countries, technical partners, and consultants with methodologies and tools to support hight quality standard for earthquake-generated tsunami hazard assessment across the region.

COSPPac: Climate and Oceans Support Program in the Pacific (COSPPac)

We work with our Pacific Island counterparts to build tools to forecast and report on climate, tides, sea level and ocean conditions. At the same time, we work with them to determine how best to communicate this information to communities, businesses and governments to improve preparedness and decision-making.

Climate Risk Early Warning Systems (CREWS) : Inundation forecast system for Tuvalu & Kiribati

As part of the Climate Risk Early Warning Systems (CREWS) initiative led by World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), SPC's Oceanography Team is developing and implementing high-resolution wave and inundation early forecast systems with the countries of Tuvalu and Kiribati. The systems are developed to the national context to provide accurate, timely and actionable forecast information to support safety at sea, tourism and disaster risk reduction for the communities of Tuvalu and Kiribati
TCAP banner

Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project (TCAP)

To support science-based coastal protection solutions and to provide nationwide coastal risk information to develop effective adaptation strategies relevant to Tuvalu communities. The application of this work will help inform best-practice approaches to address the challenge posed by climate change, sea-level rise and wave inundation risk.

Pacific Resilience Programme (I & II)

The SPC component of the PREP programme include a combination of activities and investments that would improve resilience of the participating countries and Pacific region to natural hazards by improving forecasting and disaster preparedness. The activities implemented to strengthen early warning including the related modelling work for coastal inundation in Marshall Islands, Tonga and Samoa is groundbreaking research jointly implemented with leading international scientists.
