Sixth International Symposium, 2017

    

   In contrast to the previous five years the venue of this year’s international symposium of the project and post-symposium field excursion moved from Asian countries to Poland, a country whose southern part hosts a key portion of the Tethyan orogen, the Polish Carpathians, that bridges the eastern and the western Tethysides. This arrangement provided most Asian participants a chance to have a close look at other parts of the Tethysides and help them to understand the development of the Tethyan Realm in a more comprehensive way.

   On 29-30 September 2017 the sixth international symposium of IGCP-589 was held in the Auditorium of the AGH University of Science and Technology (first day) and the lecture room of Polish Geological Institute–National Research Institute, Carpathian Branch (second day) in Kraków. More than 40 participants from Australia, Austria, China, Hungry, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Poland, Slovakia, Thailand, and UK took parts in the symposium. They exchanged their latest achievements and ideas about models or possible modes of the evolution of the Tethys. 21 oral and 6 poster presentations were given addressing problems and key issues related to the development of the Tethyan Realm.

   A five-day (1 to 5 October 2017) post-symposium field excursion was conducted in the Polish Carpathians in the manner of traveling from Kraków to the southernmost part of Poland crossing different zones of the Carpathians, and then coming back to Kraków along another route. This was aimed to enable the participants to touch the Polish Carpathians as much as possible, and thus to have a better understanding about its structure and composition. Major units carefully observed are the Outer Flysch Carpathians and Inner Carpathians (including the Pieniny Klippen Belt, Podhale Paleogene Flysch and Tatra Mts.) and Carpathian Foredeep as well. Visits deep in the well-known Bochnia and Wielczka salt mines (Miocene evaporates) in the afternoon and early evening of the fifth day brought the excursion to a successful end. Participants have not only been amazed by all the excellent outcrops and sections, but also stunned by the grand landscape of the Carpathians.

 


Fifth International Symposium, 2016

 

     This is the first IGCP symposium held in Myanmar since the launching of a series of successive IGCP projects addressing the tectonics and geological evolution of Asia (especially east and south Asia) (IGCP-224, 321, 411, 516, and 589). This symposium provided a rare chance for participants to study onsite the rocks of Myanmar. It also encouraged Myanmar to be more involved in the International Geoscience Programme.

    More than 40 colleagues and students from China, India, Japan, Myanmar, Philippines, Poland, Thailand, and Vietnam participated in the symposium, where they exchanged latest understandings, new ideas and scientific achievements about the development of Tethys. Several registered delegates from Australia, Iran, Turkey and UK were unfortunately not able to join up due to unexpected reasons in the last minutes. 27 oral and 4 poster presentations were given, which address problems of tectonic configuration, regional geology, biostratigraphy, paleomagnetism, paleogeogrphic evolution, geochemistry, petrology, and mineral resources related to the development of the Asian Tethyan Realm. As this is the fifth symposium of our project, two keynote lectures were arranged to review the achievements hitherto and outline the actual and potential challenges.

 

    The two-day pre-symposium excursion brought the participants to Rakhine State on the western coast of Myanmar to observe the Cenozoic sedimentary, volcanic and intrusive rocks, which are normally considered to parts of an (active) accretionary wedge related to the eastward subduction of oceanic crust of the Bengal basin.

    The five-day post-symposium excursion to the southern Shan State in northeastern Myanmar let the delegates to examine the Paleozoic and Mesozoic successions on the (Baoshan-)Shan Block; these rocks record the paleogeographic variation of the block from at the northern margin of Gondwana to being a part of the Asian continent, which are therefore crucial data for understanding the development of the Asian Tethyan Realm.


Fourth International Symposium, 2015

    The Fourth International Symposium was held on October 26-27, 2015 in the campus of Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. A five-day (Oct. 28- Nov. 1) post-symposium field excursion was conducted in the Lampang–Chiang Mai area in northern Thailand.

    More than 40 participants from Australia, Belgium, China, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Turkey, UK, and Vietnam took parts in the symposium and exchanged their latest understandings of the development of the Tethys. 27 oral and 16 poster presentations were given addressing problems of tectonic configuration, regional geology, biostratigraphy, paleogeogrphic evolution, geochemistry, petrology, and mineral resources exploration related to the development of the Asian Tethyan Realm. 3 keynote speakers devoted efforts respectively on 1) the evolution of the Khao Khwang Fold and Thrust Belt, 2) fluid evolution through di­fferent deformation stages, and 3) multidisciplinary constraints on the Sukhothai and Loei Belts. It is encouraging that many students from different countries took parts in the symposium. Also a large number of the students of the Department of Geology, Chulalongkorn attended the meeting. They functioned as hosts, staff members and participants.
    Northern Thailand is a geologically very complicated region that accommodates the complexes of eastern Paleo-Tethyan suture(s). The five-day post-symposium field excursion took place in the LampangChiang Mai area where the participants were able to observe various rocks representing the Sibumasu block and the Sukhothai zone. The focus of the trip was on tectonic evolution of the early Mesozoic collision between the Sibumasu block and the Indochina block/Sukhothai Zone. The Cenozoic basins in northern Thailand were also a target of the trip. Moreover, participants were allowed to visit some local attractions e.g. the Thailand’s biggest coal mine, the Golden Temple of Doi Suthep, and the Sankampaeng Hot Spring.

 


Third International Symposium, 2014

 

    The Third International Symposium was held in October 21-22, 2014 in the Amirkabir Technical University, Tehran, Iran. A two-day pre-symposium (October 19-20) and a four-day post-symposium field excursion (October 23-26) were organized and actively participated in by colleagues from different countries. With the devotement of the Geological Survey of Iran, the organizer of the event, the hospitality of Amirkabir Technical University, and the vigorous support of IUGS and UNESCO, this event has been successfully conducted.

    More 30 participants from China, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Poland, Thailand, and Turkey meet each other in this event and exchanged their latest findings and achievements on evolution of the Tethys. 21 oral presentations and 10 posters dealing with key problems of different regions and/or structures of the Tethyan realm were given by the participants, among which women and students are well represented. Papers presented cover different disciplines of geological sciences, demonstrating the features of multidisciplinary approaches of the project.

Second International Symposium, 2013

 

The Second International Symposium of IGCP-589 was held in November 4-5, 2013 in Boracay Island, Philippines. A total of 51 participants from Australia, China, Iran, Japan, Mongolia, Philippines, Poland, Thailand, and UK attended the two-day scientific sessions, 28 of whom also joined the post-symposium fieldwork in the Panay Island. Due to the entry of Typhoon Haiyan into the area where the excursion was to be conducted, the excursion was cut short, in order to maximally guarantee the safety of all participants. As an alternative, participants visited the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and the University of the Philippines. They were given a presentation by specialist on active volcanism and earthquake in the Philippines. They also observed the real-time monitoring system of volcanoes and earthquakes. Participants were satisfied with their brief stay in Manila.

The decision of applying this project, which was supposed to be a successor of IGCP-516, was made at the business meeting of IGCP-516 on 26 September 2009 by a show of hands of all participants unanimously. The business meeting was held during the 5th International Symposium of IGCP-516 (Geological Anatomy of East and South Asia) in Kunming, China in late September 2009.
