International Research Conference "Stratigraphy of the upper proterozoic and phanerozoic sedimentary rocks"

28.05.2013

International Research Conference "Stratigraphy of the upper proterozoic and phanerozoic sedimentary rocks"

Organized by:

  • Eurasian Association of Geologists (EAAG)
  • Institute of Geological Sciences of the NAS of Ukraine (IGS NAS of Ukraine)
  • Associations of Ukrainian Geologists (AUG)
  • Tutkovsky Institute
  • Paleontological Society NAS of Ukraine

Conference topics:

  • Development trends of modern stratigraphy
  • Methods of stratigraphic studies and correlation
  • Stratigraphy of sedimentary basins

Stratigraphy is a cornerstone of geology and the basis for geological research for any region. Therefore, all geologists regardless of the country in which they operate, are interested in the problems of stratigraphy.

Scientific cooperation firmly established in the last century between experts from countries of the Eastern Europe, Central Asia and other regions had certainly a beneficial influence on the development of theoretical and practical stratigraphy.

However, in recent decades, these ties are gradually weakened and lost. This comes against the backdrop of rapid development and improvement of methods of stratigraphy, among which, along with the traditional lithostratigraphic and biostratigraphic ones widely used also seismostratigraphic, isotopic, paleomagnetic, and other methods.

The newly established Eurasian Association of Geologists is aiming to support and develop an international scientific cooperation in geology. This conference is a first step towards achieving this goal. We invite all geologists working in the stratigraphy to share their research results and ideas at the conference.

We are waiting for you in Kiev in September 2013!

Co-Chairs:
P.O., Zagorodnyuk (EAAG), P.F., Gozhyk (IGS NAS of Ukraine)

Committee members:
N.I. Dykan, V.Yu. Zosimovich, M.M. Ivanik, T.P. Mikhnitska, V.I. Poletaev, O.A. Sirenko (IGS NAS of Ukraine), V.V. Ogar (KNU), V.P. Bezvynnyi (AUG), B.I. Lelyk, G.D., Lisny (NADRA Group).

Scientific Secretaries:
G. A., Liventseva, O.A., Sirenko

We also invite potential participants to join geological fieldtrips:

  • Neoproterozoic and Lower Paleozoic of the Dniester River region
  • Meso-Cenozoic stratigraphic sequence of the Kaniv dislocations area
  • Outcrops of the Cenozoic sedimentary rocks in the outskirts of Kyiv city

The number of the field trips, the cost and dates will be adjusted depending on the number of participants and their wishes.
