Notice on the World Earth Day Activities of Tianzhushan UGGp

The earth is the common home of human beings. The survival of human beings is closely related to the earth. We grow and live on the earth and enjoy the resources brought to us by the earth. At the same time, the planet is facing unprecedented challenges, with increasing ecological degradation. We should always be soberly aware that it is the responsibility and obligation of all mankind to protect the earth. The earth gives us infinite energy, and we should also give it back to nature in a correct way. President Xi Jinping pointed out in his report to the 19th National Congress that it is incumbent upon us to "accelerate the reform of the ecological civilization system, build a beautiful China" and protect the earth.

Pubdate:10/23/2019 WednesdayCategory:Geopark News

On Oct. 22, the after-meeting field mission of the 9th (2019) Hutton International Granite Symposium was taken in Tianzhushan Geopark. More than 30 experts and representatives from China, USA, France, Brazil, Japan and other countries came to Tianzhushan Geopark to make investigations, mainly focusing on the granite landform of Tianzhushan. Professor Zhao Zifu from University of Science and Technology of China gave a detailed introduction to the basic geological situation, research history and visit routes of Tianzhushan, and participating experts and scholars made in-depth discussion on the composition and formation cause of granite rocks after collision in continental subduction zone.

The Hutton International Granite Symposium is to memorize Mr. James Hutton (1726-1797), founder of the pyrogenist school of geology, who made important contributions to geology. The first symposium was held in 1987 in Edinburgh, the birthplace of James Hutton, the UK. The symposiums have been held for nine consecutive sessions, once every four years, becoming one of the most influential international academic conferences in the field of earth sciences. The 9th (2019) Hutton International Granite Symposium was held in Nanjing, which was the first time that this quadrennial international granite “Olympic” event has been held in China.
