MANUSCRIPT FOR PROCEEDING VOLUME
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 (obata@kueps.kyoto-u.ac.jp) 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 15, 2002.

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.

INSURANCE
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 times).

œHoroman Peridotite Field Excursion (Aug. 27-28 & Sept. 1-2)

Leaders: K. Niida (Hokkaido), N. Takahashi (Chiba), E. Takazawa (Niigata), T. Sawaguchi (Waseda), T. Morishita (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 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 airport around
noon.

POST CONFERENCE FIELD EXCURSION
