Cuti-cuti Malaysia: Pangkor Island Cuti-cuti Malaysia: Pangkor Island Document Transcript

  • Cuti-cuti Malaysia: Pangkor IslandVisit Kuala Lumpur http://klsentral.orgDavid asks…Pangkor apartment for rent??I’ve tried search on the internet but mostly it resort or hotels available.Anyone know any apartment to rent at Pangkor island?Need to rent about 2 or 3 days or so. Preferable with sea view.Kaki Cuti Cuti Malaysia answers:Just becareful.. Don’t rent any cheap n old apartment.. Cuz it is hunted…seriously……Just type visit malaysia..in yahoo or google.. I’m sure there are alot of links will pop up.. Try thelink belowwww.malaysiatravelguide.net/tourist-attraction/perak/index.html – 21k - 1/7
  • Laura asks…Which Malaysian Island would you recommend?We are a family with an older teenager. Am familiar with Malaysia, have plenty of family outthere so will be visiting SP, KL, Seramban and Kluang but are also looking for a relaxinghotel-based destination by the beach for a few nights. Having already been to Penang, wasthinking of islands such as Redang, Langkawi or Pangkor although Penang is not out of thequestion as it was a few years ago that visited here. What’s it like now? Thanks!Kaki Cuti Cuti Malaysia answers:Pulau Perhentian.Mark asks… 2/7
  • Why the sea is red in colour?May I know what is happening to the sea in Pangkor Island? The water is changing becomered in colour yesterday. Does it relate to the weather changing? May it damage the ecosystemof marine life?Kaki Cuti Cuti Malaysia answers:Here in Florida in the Gulf of Mexico we have the same problem and always have it about thistime of year or a little later in the spring.Its called “Red Tide” – and is caused by a little one or two cell organism in the water thatdepletes the oxygen.And Yes it can be very dangerous to the Fish and other sea animals because the fish becomesuffocated and die from the lack of oxygen, and become toxic because of it.You do not want to eat any of the fish or other animals that has died from this because it couldmake you seriously ill!When this happens usually people will start having running noses and their throats will burn alittle bit by breathing in the air and it causes a lot of respiratory distress and is especially hard onolder people.Be Ware of it!Good Luck! 3/7 View slide
  • Chris asks…berapa pulau pangkor ke ipoh?pulau pangkor is an island off the coast of western part of malaysia and ipoh is the inland townKaki Cuti Cuti Malaysia answers:If you’d ask something, please be in a details, otherwise, no one will help you.John asks…can anyone check my english grammar?1.2Problem StatementSurface current is one of the important ocean information and the main component of the oceancirculation. By studying them, it will help scientist to understand their mechanism andtime-variable characters, which useful for exploiting ocean resources, disaster prevention andmitigation, ship navigation and etc (Zhang, 20007). However, this aspect has not received 4/7 View slide
  • enough attention in the region, due to various reasons and constraints. There are two weakpoints in ocean current study in Malaysia which encourage this study; limitation of datacollection and data management problem. Besides of that, the ability of multi-mission satellitealtimetry to provide long term sea level and wind data also motivate this study to understandfurther the seasonal variation of surface current pattern. It is because, the transitions ofmonsoon which can be distinguish based on the changes in the wind flow patterns, stronglyinfluence the surface current pattern especially at open sea area such as South China Sea.1.2.1Data collectionGenerally, basic observations of ocean current do exist in Malaysia based on in situobservational such as ship drift, drifting buoy or current metre. But in most cases, observationsjust cover limited areas and serve certain specific purpose. It is because direct measurement forlarge scale area is difficult and use costly basin scales. In Malaysia, there are two agencieswhich are responsible in carrying out the periodic observation on ocean current; Royal MalaysiaNavy Hydrographical Department (RMNHD) and Malaysian Meteorological Department (MMD).However, as military agencies, the observation by RMNHD just most designed for militarypurpose and the data from the observations are not freely accessed by civilians. While, MMDjust depends on four stations, Pangkor Island waters, Jetty of UMS, Kota Kinabalu, MabulIsland Semporna and Perhentian Island, Terengganu to collect the ocean current data. Theobservation can only provide point base data and not represent the offshore area because thestations just installed at coastal area. Thus, this limited information reveals some importantfeatures of the ocean circulation. An alternative to overcome those limitations is by usingspace-based technique to provide large-scale surface current and study the ocean circulation.1.2.2Data managementMalaysia is still facing problems with ocean data management. The ocean database in Malaysiacan be said as not centralised because the data are normally kept separately in the differentinstitution which carried out the observations. For example, RMNHD and MMD have their owndatabase system. Other industries like oil and gas have also conducted ocean currentobservation and have developed their own database system. Additionally, the data are notrepresentative for the whole Malaysian seas area and are just designed for their purposerespectively. Although there is effort by the Malaysian National Oceanography Directorate(NOD) to develop MyNODC (Malaysia Oceanographic Data Centre), a database foroceanographic data sharing, but until now the project is still not fully success because of datalimitation and data sharing problem between institution and NOD. This situation make difficultfor scientist to access the data for another scientific research. To overcome this problem, anoceanographic database based on altimetry technology can be developed as an alternativedatabase or supporting to MyNODC. From the database system, ocean data can be freelyextracted, analyzed or printout for another scientific purpose. 5/7
