- Scientific Program
The Samani Workshop is aimed at discussion and exchange of
ideas on a wide range of topics related to the origin, evolution
and emplacement history of continental and oceanic mantle rocks,
and physical and chemical processes in the mantle. It will consist
of a three-day indoor meeting (August 29 - 31) to be held in
the Town Hall of Samani, and a two-day field excursion in the
Horoman peridotite. The Organizing Committee strongly hopes to
bring together geologists, petrologists, geochemists and geophysicists
with diverse approaches and methodologies. Main scientific themes
and key topics of the workshop are summarized as follows, but
the list is in no way exclusive.
(1) Origin of heterogeneity on various scales as documented
in mantle derived ultramafic rocks, with particular emphasis
on mechanisms for forming layered structures:
„ origin and significance of mafic layers (pyroxenites, gabbros,
eclogites); magmatic seggregates or recycled components?
„ significance of refractory layers; related to magma channeling,
melt compaction waves, or folded and stretched recycled refractory
„ geochemical stratification of lithospheric mantle?
(2) Mechanisms of melt production and modification of partial
melts during melt segregation, melt transport, and mantle-melt
„ modeling mantle-melt reactions during melt migration with implications
for the mechanisms of melt transport in the upper mantle.
„ melting/reaction fronts in mantle rocks: the significance in
„ composition, stability fields, reactivity, and physical and
transport properties of lithospheric fluids.
„ precise geochronology of melting and metasomatic events in
(3) Rheology of solid and partially molten mantle and flow
dynamics in the mantle:
„ in situ mantle tectonics seen through regional measurements
of seismic anisotropy.
„ local and global, isotropic/anisotropic seismic tomography
of the mantle.
„ effect of mantle heterogeneities on physical properties of
„ analogical and numerical modeling of mantle convection.
„ Pressure-temperature-deformation history of a mantle peridotite
and its bearing on emplacement mechanism of orogenic lherzolite.
(4) Recycling and processing of lithosphere into the mantle
on local and global scales and the geochemical evolution of the
- „ geochemical evolution of lithospheric mantle: continuous
or discrete melt infiltration processes?
„ origin of orogenic lherzolites: rifted subcontinental lithosphere
or oceanic ridges?
„ nature and composition of deep mantle reservoirs?
„ origin of fertile lherzolites: "pristine" (virtually
unmelted) mantle vs. refertilized mantle?
Scientific presentations will be made in oral and poster
sessions, based on submitted abstracts. Concurrent sessions will
be avoided in order to insure sufficient exchange of ideas and
equitable exposure for both oral and poster presentations. The
official language of the Workshop will be English. No simultaneous
translation service will be provided. Participants are limited
to one oral and one poster presentations. Submission to both
oral and poster by the same senior author is acceptable as long
as the papers are on different topics. Depending on the total
numbers of submissions and the time allowed, however, we may
ask participants to move from oral to poster or vice versa at
the program forming stage.
15 ~ 20 minutes (depending on number of papers) will be allocated
to each oral presentation including time for discussion. More
detailed instructions will be given in the third circular. The
lecture hall will be equipped with two slide projectors (standard
size: 5 cm x 5 cm), two overhead projectors, one liquid crystal
display (LCD) projector, and two projection screens.
The size of each display board is 0.9 m in height and 1.8
m in width. Sessions for short oral presentations (< 3 minutes)
may be placed before the poster sessions. The Workshop program
and more detailed suggestions for presentation will be provided
in the third circular.

Leaders: K. Niida (Hokkaido), N. Takahashi (Chiba),
E. Takazawa (Niigata), T. Sawaguchi (Waseda), T. Morishita (Kanazawa),
A. Toramaru (Kanazawa), and others.
Day 1: Trip along the Horoman River
The first day trip illustrates the major structural frame
work and the main lithologies of the Horoman peridotite complex,
i. e. spinel dunite, harzburgite, spinel lherzolite, spinel-pyroxene
symplectite-bearing lherzolite, plagioclase lherzolite, and some
mafic-type layers. We will visit several stops along the Horoman
River by bus. The transition between harzburgite and lherzolite
and the contact of spinel dunite cumulate with the wall harzburgite
will be examined as examples of lithological change with mineralogical-geochemical
modification generated in the upper mantle. This trip involves
a few short walk crossing small cliffs and shallow streams. Consequently,
appropriate footgear and shirts with long sleeves are recommended.
The bus will pick up participants from each hotel and drop them
back to the same hotel.
Day 2: Trip to Mt. Apoi-dake (810.6m)
The second day trip illustrates the main lithologies
of Upper Zone of the Horoman complex, including mafic layers
of Type I (GB I) and Type II (GB II) in association with ultramafic
suites of plagioclase lherzolite, dunite, and harzburgite with
extremely high Mg and Cr signatures. On the northern ridge of
Mt. Apoi-dake, we also observe the banding structure between
peridotite and mafic layers that is typical of the Upper Zone.
We will walk first 40-60 min. along a forest trail in forest
up to the mountain observatory (cottage), which is a rest point
with a nice view of the Pacific Ocean (approximately 350 m above
the sea level). Some major exposures locate at 500-550 m level.
We will take a lunch on the western ridge 'Uma-no-se' of Mt.
Apoi-dake with a splendid 360Ą panorama of the Hidaka mountains.
The participants, who are in good physical condition, can reach
the final stop at the northern ridge (750-800 m level). It is
also enjoyable to stay a day or a half-day around the mountain
cottage. The weather will be calm around 20-25ĄC on sunny days.
Normal mountain gear (hiking shoes, shirts, and a day pack for
rain gear and food) will be sufficient. We come back to the same
hotel and stay overnight. A shuttle bus is scheduled to leave
Samani next morning (Sept. 3) and arrive in the Sappro/Chitose
Post-conference field excursions
(1) Deep-seated plutonic and metamorphic rocks of the Hidaka
Metamorphic Belt (Sept. 1-3): Crustal section overlying the
Leaders: J. Maeda (Hokkaido Univ., Sapporo, Japan), M.
Owada (Yamaguchi Univ., Yamaguchi, Japan), K. Arita (Hokkaido
Univ., Sapporo, Japan), and T. Yamasaki (Hokkaido Univ., Sapporo,
The trip begins in Samani and ends in Sapporo/Chitose Airport,
Hokkaido around noon on September 3. It may be connected to the
post-conference excursions (2) and (3) at the Airport.
On this three-days trip to the Hidaka Mountains, we will observe
deep-seated plutonic and metamorphic rocks of juvenile arc-like
crustal section, Hidaka Metamorphic Belt, which is structurally
overlying the Horoman peridotite complex. Two NS-trending geologic
units are distinguished in the Hidaka Mountains, the Poroshiri
Ophiolite in the west and the Hidaka Metamorphic Belt (or Hidaka
Magmatic Belt) in the east. The boundary of these units is the
Hidaka Main Thrust. The Poroshiri Ophiolite is composed of late
Cretaceous ophiolitic rocks metamorphosed during the early Miocene
to the greenschist- through amphibolite- and granulite-facies,
and includes pelitic schists, greenschists, epidote amphibole
schists, amphibolites, metacumulates, and ultramafic tectonites
(dunites and harzburgites). The Hidaka Metamorphic Belt, the
target of our trip, consists of steeply eastward dipping thrust
sheets composed of pelitic-psammitic and mafic metamorphic rocks
and various plutonic rocks of Eocene to early Miocene ages. Igneous
intrusives include layered olivine gabbros, heterogeneous gabbros/diorites,
and S- and I-type granitoids. The metamorphic grade increases
from prehnite-pumpellyite grade in the east through greenschist
and amphibolite facies to the granulite facies in the west. Primitive
gabbroic complexes are situated in the west (namely deeper level)
and felsic ones are in the east (shallower level). Total thickness
of the crustal section attains up to 20 km or more. This crustal
section is now structurally overlying, but actually in fault
contact with, some peridotite (plagioclase lherzolites and harzburgites)
complexes including the Horoman peridotite. Origin of the Hidaka
Metamorphic Belt has been related to the collision of the Kula-Pacific
spreading center against the eastern margin of the Eurasian plate
during Eocene time. We can observe the metamorphic and anatectic
rocks in the middle and lowest horizons of the Hidaka Metamorphic
Belt in Day 1. Lower crustal layered olivine gabbro complex (troctolite,
olivine gabbro and ferrogabbro) originated from primitive N-MORB
magma and heterogeneous gabbro/diorite complex (gabbro, hornblende-bearing
gabbro and hornblende-biotite diorite) formed by the hybridization
of mantle-derived N-MORB magma and crust-derived anatectic felsic
magma will be observed in Day 2.
Day 1 (September 1) Samani to Hidaka. Excursion
to Shoya (metamorphic rocks and anatectic tonalite of the middle
horizon) and Menasyunbetsu (granulites of the lowest horizon
of Hidaka Metamorphic Belt). Dinner and overnight at Hidaka.
Day 2 (September 2) Excursion to Pankenushi (Pankenushi
layered olivine gabbro complex and Memurodake heterogeneous plutonic
complex, and S-type tonalite of the lowest horizon of Hidaka
Metamorphic Belt). Dinner and overnight at Hidaka.
Day 3 (September 3) After the packing and visiting
to the village museum 'Hidaka Mountains Center', we will move
to Sapporo/Chitose Airport.
Hidaka is a small village (2,200 population) located in the western
foothill of the northern Hidaka Mountains. Accommodation of the
Days 1 and 2 is at Hotel Kogenso (western- and Japanese-style
rooms), Hidaka. The weather of this time is calm, 20-25ĄC at
daytime, in general. Travel largely by minibus with moderate
hikes. Hiking shoes and rain gear are essential.
Maximum number of participants: 16.
Cost: 66,000 Yen. The cost includes a guidebook, hotel accommodation,
meals and transportation.
(2) Hayachine and Miyamori ultramafic complexes in the Kitakami
mountains, north-eastern Honshu island (Sept. 3-6): multi-stage
and open-system magmatism in the Ordovician supra-subduction
Leaders: K. Ozawa (Univ. Tokyo, Japan) and M. Nakagawa
(Geol. Survey of Japan)
A tour to the Hayachine and Miyamori ultramafic complexes in
the Kitakami mountains, northeastern Honshu island, Japan. They
belong to the basal ultramafic member of an Ordovician supra-subduction
zone ophiolite, which was thrusted over the Silurian and Pre-Silurian
sedimentary and metamorphic rocks in the Kitakami mountains.
The ultramafic complexes exhibit many peculiar petrologic features,
such as the common occurrence of hornblende and the ferric-rich
nature of chromites. The ultramafic rocks can be divided into
tectonite member characterized by a strong mineral lineation
and lattice preferred orientation and cumulate member featuring
cumulus textures with minor subsolidus deformation. The tectonite
member exhibits diverse lithological variation from fertile lherzolite
to very refractory harzburgite and dunite with minor association
of pyroxenites and wehrlite. The cumulate member is composed
of wehrlite, dunite, and pyroxenites. These ultramafic rocks
are intruded by many bodies of hornblendite and clinopyroxene
hornblende gabbro having various size from less than a meter
to a few kilometers.
The main target of this field excursion is the contact relationship
between the cumulate and tectonite members, well-developed layered
structure in a zone of melt focusing in the tectonite, hornblende-
and phlogopite-bearing peridotites, field relation with mafic
extrusive and shallow intrusive rocks, and field relations between
mafic and ultramafic rocks. Please note that the peridotites
are fairly serpentinized and also extensively brecciated with
local preservation of original structures. Excursion course,
transportation, and time schedule are as follows:
Day 1 (September 3) departing Samani to Morioka
Stay in Morioka (Western-style hotel)
Day 2 (September 4) Hayachine ultramafic complex
and related mafic intrusive and extrusive rocks
Stay in Miyamori (Japanese-style inn)
Day 3 (September 5) Miyamori ultramafic complex
Stay in Miyamori (Japanese-style inn))
Day 4 (September 6) departing Morioka to Tokyo
Morioka is a large city in the Tohoku district (280,000 population).
Miyamori is a peaceful small village inhabited by 5, 600 people.
In early September, the weather will be calm around 25 ĄC, but
the temperature could be higher than 30 ĄC. Participants are
requested to bring rain gear because the weather is quite changeable.
We use bus or rent-a-car to get around this region and the most
of outcrops are easily accessible from the major roads except
for a few localities in the Hayachine region.
Maximum number of participants: 10
Cost: JPY 70,000. The registration fee includes the guide book
to the field excursion, hotel accommodation, meals and transportation.
- (3) Deep-seated xenoliths from the Southwest Japan Arc:
Kurose and Takashima, northern Kyushu (Sept. 3-8): A tour
to xenolith localities for peridotite and related rocks on the
Japanese island arc (Takashima and Kurose, northern Kyushu island).
Leaders: S. Arai (Kanazawa Univ., Japan) and N. Abe (GEMOC,
Macquarie Univ., Australia)
This field trip is designed to look ultramafic xenoliths derived
from the upper mantle of the Japan arcs. We selected two localities
which are easily accessible and where xenoliths are relatively
abundant: they are Kurose and Takashima of Kyushu district in
the Southwest Japan arc. The xenoliths were carried from the
lower crust to upper mantle beneath the arc by alkali olivine
basalts. Xenoliths derived from the upper mantle proper and cumulus
mantle are predominant in Kurose and Takashima, respectively.
Kurose is a small reef-like rock off Genkai-jima island in Fukuoka
City (Hakata Bay). The basalt is 1.1 Ma in age and contains abundant
mafic to ultramafic xenoliths (up to 30 cm in size). It is characteristically
free of Group II (black-clinopyroxene series) xenoliths and related
megacrysts. Cpx-bearing harzburgite is the most predominant,
followed by fine-grained Fe-rich lherzolite and dunite. Spinel
granulite of lower crustal origin is common.
Takashima is a small island off Karatsu City (Karatsu Bay), and
is composed of basal granodiorite of Cretaceous age capped by
alkali olivine basalt of 3.0 Ma. Exposures are not accessible
and we are checking numerous shore boulders around the islet.
Mantle peridotites (lherzolite to harzburgite) are almost absent,
and dunite-wehrlite- clinopyroxenite xenoliths of Group I (green-clinopyroxene
series) up to 40 cm are abundant. Pyroxenites of Group II and
related black pyroxene megacrysts are also very common. Granulite
is rarely found as xenoliths, and granitic rocks digested to
various extent are very common. If you are lucky enough chromitite
xenoliths with nodular texture may be encountered. Approximate
schedule is as follows. Please note that the Day 5 is optional.
If you like you can move to Fukuoka City or to any other places
in September 6 (Day 5).
Day 1 (September 3) Sapporo to Fukuoka (plane)
Fukuoka to Genkai-jima Island (ferry)
Stay at Genkai-jima Island (Japanese-style inn)
Day 2 (September 4) Field work on Kurose Rock
Genkai-jima Đ Kurose (small boat)
Stay at Genkai-jima Island
Day 3 (September 5) Genkai-jima to Fukuoka (ferry)
Fukuoka to Karatsu (train or car)
Stay at Karatsu (Western style hotel)
Day 4 (September 6) Karatsu to Takashima Island
Filed work on Takashima island
- Takashima to Karatsu (15:30)
Stay at Karatsu (optional)
Day 5 (September 7) Packing
Fukuoka (http://www.city.fukuoka.jp/index-e.htm) is the largest
city of Kushu district with more than 1.3 millions of population.
Karatsu is a small city in Saga Prefecture, but is attractive
for tourists: you can enjoy a beautiful sandy beach with numerous
pine trees (Niji-no-Matsubara beach), traditional Karatsu pottery
and Karatsu Castle.
The weather is quite different from Hokkaido due to the difference
of latitude. It is usually hot and humid at the beginning of
September. The maximum temperature may be higher than 30 degrees
Celsius. You are requested to bring rainwear with you. Please
note that our trip is highly dependent on weather because we
are working on the small rock (Kurose) and shore of the islet
(Takashima). We are sorry to have decided to skip Ichi-no-megata
(Megata volcano) of the Northeast Japan Arc for the reason that
there are so few numbers of xenoliths expected to obtain there
Maximum number of participants: 20
Cost: JPY 120,000 (covering transportation, accommodation, and
N. B. Regarding these three post-conference field excursions,
in order to be financially reasonable, each of these field trips
requires a minimum number of participants. More information and
details of the trips will be given in the third circular. If
the post-conference excursion(s) is canceled due to too few number
of participants the full payment for the excursion will be refunded
in the amount of Japanese yen with no bank charge/commission.
- Transportation to Samani
Samani is a local town located about 200km southeast of Sapporo,
the largest city in Hokkaido. The nearest international airport
is Sapporo/Chitose Airport (40 km southeast of Sapporo). Those
traveling from overseas by plane are strongly advised to buy
a through-way ticket in their countries to final destination,
Sappro/Chitose. This may save air fare considerably. Of course,
you may wish to stop in Tokyo or Osaka as well. (There are a
few direct flights (KLM) Amsterdam - Sapporo, only 3 flights
a week.) Samani is connected by train and bus from Sapporo/Chitose
Airport. Detailed information will be placed on web site and
will be provided to all registered participants. Because it will
take about 4 hours from the airport to Samani by public transportation,
arrival in the morning at Sapporo/Chitose Airport is advised.
Furthermore special shuttle buses will be arranged on August
26 and 28 to pick up participants at the Sapporo/Chitose Airport.
The pick-up time will be announced later. For return trip, shuttle
buses will be arranged on September 1 and 3 to leave Samani in
the early morning and to arrive in the Sappro/Chitose airport
In the town of Samani there is no possibility to exchange
foreign currency to Japanese yen. Therefore, we recommend
your exchange of foreign currency in the airport (e.g., Sapporo/Chitose
Airport). However, with a Credit Card (VISA, Master, AMEX, Diners
Club, JCB), a Debit Card (VISA Electron, Maestro) or a Cash Card
(Cirrus, PLUS) you may withdraw money from a cash machine (ATMs)
at the post office of Samani.
Participants at the workshop and field trips are requested
to provide full insurance coverage for themselves.
Workshop information on the web
The Lherzolites Workshop WWW page will be updated on a regular
basis from November 2000. All information in this circular will
be included as well as the conference themes, more information
on the field excursions, and the lists of participants.
