Abstract: The information transfer program of the Water and Energy Research Institute of the Western Pacific is designed to provide information on water related issues to diverse groups ranging from research scientists, water resources related agency personnel, science teachers, students, and concerned citizens of Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI). Activities aimed and increasing the availability of the USGS sponsored research include the following: 1) technical completion reports resulting from USGS funded research projects, 2) The WERI web site, which serves as one of the primary information dissemination mediums of the institute. The site is designed to provide important information on all of the functions of the Institute including the technical completion reports. WERI will continue to update the Web site: http://www.weriguam.org , and 3) Travel to professional forums. Because of Guam remote location it is difficult and quite costly for researchers to present their finding at technical conference s and symposiums. This project will fund a portion of travel expenses for any PI or his graduate student presenting a refereed professional paper summarizing all or a portion of current 104B research.
