Professor James T. Liu of National Sun Yat-sen University in Kaoshiung, Taiwan, and his chief technician, Francy Kuo, visited the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Western Coastal and Marine Geology (WCMG) Team in Menlo Park and Santa Cruz, Calif., December 19-21, 2005. The main purpose of the visit was to meet with team scientist Jingping Xu to discuss general collaborations in submarine-canyon studies, in particular a plan to employ USGS sediment traps and other mooring technology in Taiwan's Fate of Terrestrial Substances in Kao-ping Submarine Canyon (FATES-KP) research program. Dr. Liu and Mr. Francy Kuo visited WCMG's marine facility (Marfac) in Redwood City, Calif., where Jingping and Hal Williams hosted a mock-up demonstration of sediment-trap use in tautline mooring and platform applications. At the USGS Pacific Science Center in Santa Cruz, Dr. Liu presented a seminar titled "Fate of Terrestrial Substances in Kao-ping Submarine Canyon (FATES-KP): Overview of an Interdisciplinary Research Program in Taiwan." Jingping and the Taiwanese delegation also visited Charlie Paull of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) in Moss Landing, Calif., who showcased MBARI's canyon-research programs in a guided tour.
