The 2nd Annual Symposium of IGCP Project-581 will comprise two parts, presentations of scientific results and a field trip. The presentation part will last for two days (June 11-12, 2011) during which 3 sessions will be presented.
- S1. Modern processes and geochemical cycles in Asian river systems:
In this session, we would like to summarize our current knowledge about processes and geochemical cycles in modern Asian river systems, both large and small, involving weathering, erosion, transportation and sedimentation, and their controlling factors such as climate, vegetation, and geography from multi-disciplinary perspectives.
- S2: River system response to Asian monsoon variability and its impact on marginal seas: terrestrial and marine records:
In this session, we would like to explore impact of Asian monsoon on the river processes, geochemical cycles, and environment of marginal seas (e.g., East China Sea) in orbital to millennial time-scales.
- S3. Asian river–continental shelf systems linked to the Cenozoic tectonic and climatic evolution:
In this session, we would like to discuss the evolution of Asian river drainage systems and continental shelf systems (e.g., Yangtze River and East China Sea) and their linkage with the Cenozoic evolution of tectonics (e.g., the uplift of Himalaya-Tibet), Asian monsoon, and glacio-eustatic sea-level changes associated with Northern Hemisphere glaciation.
- FIELD TRIP
Title: Geology and Geomorphology along the Ishikari River in central Hokkaido (June 13-14, 2010)
We will stop at geological, geographical and historical sites along the Ishikari River to explore the modern and past river systems. Also enjoy nature, culture and foods.
- Stop1-1: Kamui-kotan (high-P/T metamorphosed accretionary complex)
- Stop1-2: Toma cave (Calcareous cave of the Cretaceous limestone)
- Stop1-3: Souunkyou (Pleistocene welded pyroclastic rocks)
- Stop2-1: Biei (Periglacial landform)
- Stop2-2: Furano (Pleistocene fault and resulted landscape)
- Stop2-3: Sandantaki park (Late Cretaceous submarine fan turbidite deposits)
- Stop2-4: Bibai coal mine (Middle Eocene coal-bearing fluvial deposits)
