Dear Friends and Colleagues,
This message is being sent through the mailing lists "geo-metamorphism",
"geo-tectonics" and "MSA-Talk". We apologize if you receive this message
more than once, and if you have already enrolled yourself in the 6th IEC.
We would like to remind you that the 6th eclogite conference will be held
in Japan from September 1 to 7, 2001. We encourage those interested in
attending to register as soon as possible. Preliminary registration is not
binding, but will help in budgeting for the conference. The final
registration deadline is the end of March. Registration form and details
of the conference are available on the 6th IEC home page at
In addition to this information, with the help of Okayama University of
Science we have produced three publications that introduce the eclogite and
related rocks of southwest Japan and include descriptions of regions that
will be visited during the conference field trips.
The titles of these publications are:
1) "Kyanite-quartz eclogite and hornblende eclogite at Gongen, central
Shikoku, Japan" by Enami, M.
2) "Eclogite and related metamorphism in the Sanbagawa belt, Southwest
Japan" by Wallis, S., Takasu, A., Enami, M., and Tsujimori, T.
3) "Illustrated Introduction to Eclogite in Japan" by Tsujimori, T.,
Tanaka, C., Sakurai, T., Matsumoto, M., Miyagi, Y., Mizukami, T., Kugimiya,
Y. and Aoya, M.
These three documents are available at no charge for downloading in PDF
format from the following URL:
