Public Meetings on Tuition
The university will hold public meetings to discuss the tuition
schedule for 2006–07 through 2010–11. Students and
the public are invited to present testimony. For the public meeting

West O‘ahu Plan Moves to Next Step
Four development teams were invited to submit proposals for the
West O‘ahu campus-phase I project. The proposals will be
evaluated and the final selection will be presented to the Board
of Regents at their April meeting.
The university sought expressions of interest from developers
for the construction of phase I of the West O‘ahu campus
in Kapolei and associated infrastructure in exchange for the development
rights to up to 320 acres of non-campus university-owned lands.
Phase I includes the construction of four buildings that would
support an initial enrollment of 1,520 students.

Manoa Schedules Flood Symposium
The Manoa community examines the causes and effects of the disastrous
flood that swept through the campus on October 30, 2004, at a symposium
on Mon., Feb. 28, 1 p.m. at Kuykendall Auditorium. The symposium
includes presentations and discussions with representatives of
the National Weather Service, the U.S. Geological Survey, the State
Department of Land and Natural Resources, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and UH scientists who examined the conditions that led
to the severe flooding. A panel discussion will follow. Read
more about it.
IPRC Hosts International Conference

The International Pacific Research Center hosted the international
AGU Chapman Conference on “Tropical-Extratropical Climatic
Teleconnections, A Long-Term Perspective,” Feb. 8–11.
More than 50 paleo-climate and modern-day climate dynamic scientists
attended from around the world. The focus was on physical mechanisms
that explains worldwide coherent patterns of climate change that
have occurred in the past.
Mechanisms that could account for climate change included variations
in solar radiation due to changes in Earth’s orbit, variations
in greenhouse gases, atmospheric changes in circulation patterns
and ocean dynamics. Studies reconstructed paleo-climates from such
proxy records as tree-rings, corals, sediment cores, ice cores,
stalagmites and charcoal accumulations. Reconstructions of paleo-climates
are a basis for testing present-day climate models.
