· On 22 February 2012 IGCP will celebrate its 40th
at the UNESCO
Headquarters in Paris. Two of our co-leaders will actively participate
at this meeting. Iain Stewart (University of Plymouth, U.K.) will focus
on the importance of Geosciences for Society and moderate a debate on
the prospective vision for the future of IGCP. Manuel Sintubin
(Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) will reflect on the role of
IGCP in geohazard mitigation
based on the success of IGCP567.

Following our 2nd INQUA-IGCP567 International Workshop on
Active Tectonics, Earthquake Geology, Archaeology and
held from 18 to 24 September 2011 in Corinth, Greece, Andreas Vött
(University of Mainz, Germany) is preparing a special volume on in the
Zeitschrift für Geomorphologie. This is a peer-review ISI-indexed
journal and hosted up to now three special volumes on tsunamis. If you
are interested to contribute to this volume, please contact Andreas Vött

Eastar Hotel on 23 August, 2015 and pay your registration and field trip
(if attend). It is noticed that we only accept cash payment on-site and
any credit card are no longer being permitted for paying.


Topic of the special issue: Gas Geochemistry: from conventional to
unconventional domains (here, it means three conversions for gas
chemistry to unconventional natural gas resources like shale gas and
tight gas, to novel technique of noble gas, as well as to
non-traditional application domain like environment).


Student Before August 10, 2015: 150 €

For both conferences IGCP567 will most probably (depending on our
funding) be able to offer travel grants.

A four-day fieldtrip is proposed to the main areas with unique
geological characteristics and diverse of gases phenomena and special
natural and cultural attractions of Sichuan Province including active
tectonics of Tibetan Plateau and adjacent region, the spectacular
earthquake surface rupture zones related to the 2008 Ms 8.0 Wenchuan
earthquake, earthquake induced geological disasters and other earthquake
relics in the Longmen Shan mountains, and massive travertine landscape
in Songpan, as well as unique landscape from Tibetan Plateau to Sichuan
Basin(Chengdu plain). We will also have chance to see an outcrop of the
Cambrian black shale, one of the shale gas target in the Sichuan Basin
and a hot spring monitoring site of earthquake along the Longmen Shan
mountain. The field trip is about 4 days. It will begin at later
afternoon of 27, August immediately after the closing ceremony and will
likely end at later night of 31, August. We will back Chengdu at the
night of 31, August. Please plan your trip back accordingly in case of
missing the flights back. We will have a guide book soon.
