Outline

The Lanzhou University Research School of Arid Environment and Climate Change invites you to attend the First International Symposium on New Techniques for Geohazard Research and Management that will be held in Lanzhou from September 10 to 15, 2012. This symposium commemorates the Zhouqu debris flow disaster in August 2010. The focus of the symposium will therefore be on addressing geohazards research and management in Southern Gansu. Case studies from across the world are invited to highlight new techniques that can help provide safer futures for people living in these unstable landscapes.

 

The main themes that will be addressed during the symposium are

1. Geohazards in Southern Gansu

2. New techniques addressing unstable landscapes; the geological/seismic context

3. New techniques addressing unstable landscapes; geomorphological processes

4. New techniques addressing unstable landscapes; human and environmental dimensions

5. Development of monitoring, warning systems and risk assessment of geohazards

6. Development of mitigation and management strategies in unstable landscapes

We aim to conclude the symposium with a workshop to facilitate the formulation of international cooperation strategies to address specific geohazards such as the debris flow disaster that devastated the town of Zhouqu (South Gansu) in August 2010. There will be a post-symposium tour to Southern Gansu where participants will be able to get first-hand experience of the geohazards in this region.

 

The symposium is organized by

    Research School of Arid environment and Climate Change, Lanzhou University (LZU)

    Gansu Institute of Geo-Environment of Monitoring

    Geohazards Research Institute, Gansu Academy of Sciences

Following the symposium, a selection of contributions will be encouraged to be developed as journal papers for the Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology – an international scientific journal published by the Geological Society Publishing House (UK).

 

Presentation

The symposium will include oral and poster sessions. Groups of selected abstracts will be invited for oral presentations of 15 minutes each, followed by a joint discussion session. The conference facilities will be equipped with a data projector for power-point presentations. Abstracts selected for poster presentation should be presented on A1 portrait format.

Location

The main campus of Lanzhou University is located in the Chengguan district of Lanzhou at Tianshui South Road. The distance from Lanzhou Zhongchuan airport to the campus is about 70km and from Lanzhou Eastern railway Station is about 2km. There are buses linking the airport with Central Lanzhou and the railway station. Cars can be arranged to meet you at the Airport and take you to Tsuiying Hotel on September 9.

 

Field Excursion

The route will take in the landscapes around the following places: Lanzhou, Dongxiang, Yongjing, Zhouqu and Wudu. Numerous landslides and debris flows exist in Gansu of which most are concentrated in the above five places. In the Lanzhou, Dongxiang and Yongjing regions, landslides are characterized by loess mass movements, while in Zhouqu and Wudu debris flows and bedrock landslides dominate.
