THE 10TH WORKSHOP OF THE INTERNATIONAL LITHOSPHERE PROGRAM ILP-TASK FORCE ON SEDIMENTARY BASINS: Lithosphere dynamics of sedimentary basins in subduction systems and related analogues


Date: 2015/10/5-9


VENUE: DAIICHI HOTEL TOKYO SEAFORT


 


Scope:


 The 2015 Workshop of the International Lithosphere Programme (ILP) Task Force on Sedimentary Basins will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from 5-9 October 2015.  This meeting follows successful past meetings in Paris (2005), Quebec (2006), Morocco (2007), Ensenada, Baja California (2009), Abu Dhabi (2010), Tirana (2011), Brisbane (2012), and Marseille (2013).


The conference will take place in Tokyo (Shinagawa district) from 5-7 October, followed by a 2-day post-conference field trip to the Izu arc-arc collision zone from 8-9 October.


Subduction modifies the overriding plate by fractionation, accretion, and tectonic deformation including orogeny, back-arc spreading, basin formation, or intraplate shear-zone initiation.  We seek contributions linking deep and shallow processes in sedimentary basins from subduction environments and related analogues.  The ILP Task Force on Sedimentary Basins promotes dialogue among researchers studying basin fill, those investigating deeper basin structure, and those developing numerical and analogue models of basin processes.  We welcome contributions which analyze the structure and physical properties of basins as well as the underlying crust and mantle, and also contributions that examine interactions between deep earth and surface processes and the implications of these interactions for basin dynamics.


 


 


Here are the topics that we highlighted for the conference:


1- Subduction dynamics : forearc to backarc


2- Active tectonics from shallow to deep


3- Sedimentary basins from observation to modeling


4- Sedimentary and petroleum systems



Post-symposium Field Excursion (October 8-9) Geology and active tectonics of the Izu Collision Zone
The Izu-Bonin arc on the Philippine sea plate is now colliding against the Honshu arc on the Eurasian plate, forming the Izu Collision Zone 80 km west of Tokyo. We can observe the fore-arc basin fill sequence uplifted by the collision at Miura peninsula and strongly deformed trench-basin-fill in Ashigara area. A bus tour to the middle of Mt.Fuji will also be included.
