海洋環境保護是目前國內外應積極採取行動的議題，而從事海洋環境保護的方式可從多方管道進行，如加強對民眾的宣導、隨時掌握海洋環境狀況等。本計畫藉由各會員體的共同討論，獲得高精確度的作業化海洋環境預警系統，進而了解即時的海洋環境狀況。因此本計畫今年於越南召開與海洋環境相關的學術研討會(WOM-10)，會中以波浪模式為主題共同討論，為作業化海洋環境模式提供了學理上、經驗上的資訊交流。此外，原訂於今年9月15~16日在泰國舉辦之學術研討會(WOM-11)，由於沒有學者投稿，因此主辦單位聯繫人Dr. Pramot Sojisuporn建議將會議延後至明年。
The Marine Resource Conservation Working Group(MRC WG) of Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) betakes itself on the promotion of sustainable development of ocean resources. The goal of the project "Ocean Model and Information System for the APEC Region (OMISAR)" of APEC/MRC WG lays on the encouragement of the exchange of marine data between the members of APEC. The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) of Chinese, Taipei had strived and currently is in charge of the project.
The present project "APEC--Regional Cooperation on Ocean Models" assists EPA dealing with the affairs within the OMISAR project. By active participating in the OMISAR, it is possible for us to establish the relationship with other member economics. Moreover, hence we can keep our leadership in APEC/MRC/OMISAR and hold the dominative position.
The Ocean Environmental Protection is an issue, which are of priority importance to every economics. Diverse approaches could be implemented to achieve the goal, i.e. strengthen the advertising of the issue to the public, monitoring the ocean environmental factors and such like. By the open discussion and collaboration among the economics, a high accuracy operational warning system for ocean environment has been yielded.
This year, a disciplinary workshop WOM-10 was arranged and held in Honai, Vietnam in October. This forum, which was set under the theme of Wave Modelling, provided the opportunities for the scientists to exchange their experience and data.
On the other hand, another workshop (WOM-11) which ought to be held on Sep. 15~16 , 2003 in Thailand is recommended by the host Dr. Pramot Sojisuporn to postponed to next year, due to the of lack of papers submission by scholars.
