if you require such equipment or if you have any other questions
regarding the poster session, contact to Dr. Takashi SAWAGUCHI
- MANUSCRIPT FOR PROCEEDING
As announced in the second circular, peer-reviewed research
papers will be published in a special (regular) volume of Journal
of Petrology. The deadline for manuscript submission is November
15, 2002. In order to ensure rapid review and publication of
the Special Volume in 2003, authors who intend submit a manuscript
must provide Masaaki Obata (email@example.com) with a
title, authors, corresponding author, keywords, and an abstract
(200-250 words) before August 20. This is to enable the Editorial
Committee to decide on a handling editor and potential reviewers
during the Workshop. The contact address/e-mail of the handling
editor will be sent to the corresponding author such that manuscripts
can be submitted direct to that person no later than November
AIRPORT TO SAMANI AND BACK)
Special shuttle buses will be arranged on August 26 and 28
to pick up participants at the Sapporo/Chitose Airport (the New
Chitose Airport). The bus fare is 2,000 yen one way.
The meeting time is 13:30 at the Donan Bus counter (gAh counter)
in front of JAL arrival gate in the first floor (arrival lobby)
(see attached map). The departure will be at 14:00. In case if
you cannot arrive by 13:30 at the meeting place in the airport,
please make a phone call to Takazawa (09051966519) or Obata (09096955574)
from any telephone. The shuttle bus will bring you directly to
the Conference Hall in Samani, where you are requested to register
yourself and receive a package including abstract volume, field
guidebook, etc. Then, the shuttle bus takes you to each inn.
For return trip, shuttle buses will be arranged on September
1 and 3 to leave Samani in the early morning (8:00) and to arrive
in the Sappro/Chitose Airport around noon. Please see the web
site for information of other transportation.

ICE BREAKER PARTY
Ice breaker party is scheduled in the evening of August 28.
The location for the party will be informed at registration desk
in the Conference Hall.
In the town of Samani there is no possibility
of exchange foreign currency to Japanese yen. Therefore, we recommend your exchange
of foreign currency at 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 in Samani.
Participants at the workshop and field trips are requested
to provide full insurance coverage for themselves.
HOROMAN FIELD EXCURSION
A two-day field excursion to the Horoman peridotite will
be placed before (27-28 Aug.) and after (1-2 Sept.) the indoor
meeting. (We will repeat the same excursion in order to accommodate
large numbers of participants; attendees who wish to see the
Horoman peridotite in the field must choose only one of the two
Horoman Peridotite Field Excursion (Aug. 27-28 &
Leaders: K. Niida (Hokkaido), N. Takahashi (Chiba),
E. Takazawa (Niigata), T. Sawaguchi (Waseda), T. Morishita (Kanazawa),
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 360¡ 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 20-25¡C 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
It has been announced on web site and individuals that the
three post-field excursions (1) Hidaka, (2) Hayachine-Miyamori
and (3) Xenoliths were all cancelled
because of too few applications (date of decision June 2002).
