On 29 June - 1 July 1988, a meeting was held near Brisbane, Australia to: (i) Review recent research activities; (ii) Discuss issues and plan future research; (iii) Discuss the hypotheses that might be explored in a field experiment in the western North Pacific region during summer 1990; and (iv) Form working groups to begin planning for the field experiments. Each of these topics will be briefly discussed to indicate the progress and plans of the initiative. (fr)
