Tentative Work Schedule

Year 1: 2006

  • Create web site of the IGCP Project No. 507.
  • 1st International Symposium in Fukuoka, Japan in conjunction with the 17th International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS) Congress in Japan (August 27-Sept 1). One of the proponents, Prof. Yong Il Lee, requested a special session in the 17th International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS) Congress program to the Organizing Committee of the Congress and as a result a special session entitled ¡°Paleoclimate of the Cretaceous in Asia (TS11-3)¡± has been already set up and allocated in the IAS Congressprogram. Thus, the first International Meeting of the project will be held at the IAS meeting. Also, the first business meeting will be made at the same time to determine the detailed projects to be undertaken over the next four years of research.
  • A four-day field workshop for Cretaceous sequences distributed in Kyushu, Japan will be held by the guidance of Dr. T. Sakai of Kyushu University.
  • Continued fieldwork on Cretaceous sequences in Thailand by collaborated scientists from Thailand, Korea, and India focusing on sequence architecture, paleosols, provenance, and palynological aspects; sponsored by the Korean Science and Engineering Foundation.
  • Continued research on ¥ä13C stratigraphy of the non-marine and partly marine Lower Cretaceous sequences in NE China to compare and correlate the data of the Early Cretaceous in NE China with those of European and mid-Pacific and Japanese sections; sponsored by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and National Science Foundation of China.
  • Field excursions to Cretaceous units in Pakistan/India; initiative research on basin analysis and paleoclimate information in a single basin by scientists from project-participating countries. Also, in the field excursion planned is a training workshop in the scientific method relating geological studies such as preparation techniques, dating techniques, and practical stratigraphy/sedimentology studies.
  • Discussion of presented papers at the First International Meeting in peer-reviewed, international scientific journals.
  • Establish working groups: Stable carbon isotope stratigraphy, Biotic records and Lithological proxy records working groups.

Year 2: 2007

  • 2nd International Symposium and business meeting in Seoul, Korea in late August. In the second meeting of the project, the state-of-the-art knowledge of Cretaceous paleoclimates in each participating country will be presented in addition to regular research results. The results of this information will be published as a proposed edited volume. Also, planned is a special symposium session dealing with preliminary research results done on a selected sedimentary basin in Pakistan/India in the first year.
  • A field trip to Lower Cretaceous deposits in South to Southeast Korea to discuss the sedimentary environments, taphonomy, paleosols and paleoclimates by participating scientists.
  • Continued research on ¥ä13C stratigraphy of the non-marine and partly marine Lower Cretaceous sequences in NE China to compare and correlate the data of the Early Cretaceous in NE China with those of European and mid-Pacific and Japanese sections; sponsored by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and National Science Foundation of China.
  • Discussion of publication of papers presented at the Second International Meeting in a peer-reviewed, international scientific journal.* Continued research on the sedimentary basin in Pakistan/India.
  • Discussion of the selection of the second sedimentary basin and field excursions that can be studied by multinational scientists.

Year 3: 2008

  • 3rd International Symposium and business meeting in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in August. It was originally planned to have a meeting in Pakistan, but some domestic situation in Pakistan led us to change our meeting venue to Mongolia.  
  • A four-day field excursion is planned: Lower and Upper Cretaceous Dinosaur localities (Gobi Desert)
  • Attend the International Geological Congress in Oslo, Norway and present papers.* Prepare the database for Cretaceous biodiversity in Asia
  • Prepare the database for proxies of paleoclimates in Asia such as distribution of red beds and coals, etc.
  • Discussion of publication of papers presented at the Third International Meeting in a peer-reviewed, international scientific journal.

Year 4: 2009

  • 4th International Symposium and business meeting in Kyushu Japan in early December. (India is not able to hold our 4th Symposium and thus our meeting venue was changed to Kyushu, Japan)
  • A field excursion of three to four days duration in the Amakusa area where the Mifune and Goshoura groups are distributed.
  • Attend the 8th International Symposium on the Cretaceous in Plymouth, England and present papers.
  • Discuss the selection of the third sedimentary basin for an intensive study by multinational cooperating scientists.
  • Discussion of publication of papers presented at the 8th International Symposium on the Cretaceous and the Fourth International Meeting in a peer-reviewed, international scientific journal.
  • Prepare construction of paleogeographic maps containing major belts of coal accumulation and red beds distribution.

Year 5: 2010

  • 5th International Symposium and business meeting in Bandung, Indonesia in late August. This meeting will summarize results of IGCP Project.
  • Publication of a synthesis of the outcome of the IGCP Project.
  • Organize and attend the Spain meeting to compare paleoclimate information between Asian and European sections, which was proposed by a participating member, Prof. M.A. Lamolda of Spain.
  • Final report for IGCP Project.
