Preliminary Topics

            The scientific program will cover a variety of important topics in gas geochemistry.  Both oral and posters presentations will be given on the following topics:

@

(1) Gas migration in terrestrial and marine environments
(2) Earth degassing (geogas) and its relation to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions
(3) Natural gases & Gas hydrates
(4) Application of isotope techniques to geogas/fluid transport processes
(5) Rare gas dating & gas geochemistry on hard rocks and their applications
(6) Air pollution and environmental monitoring
(7) Biogeochemical processes
(8) Measurement and analytical techniques and quality control

Guidelines for presentation

Oral Presentation:

Except for the first keynote address, the presentation time for each invited speaker is 30 minutes; rest speaker is 20 minutes (both including 5 min discussion) for oral sessions.  There is only one screen in the conference hall.  No overhead projector will be provided.  The speakers need to prepare their slides in the format of Microsoft PowerPoint file.

 

Poster Presentation:

The frame size for poster display is 150cm (width) x 90cm (height).  All presenting authors of poster sessions are requested to present their work briefly for 3-5 minutes at the beginning of scheduled poster sessions before moving to the poster place for further discussion.  In addition to the poster, therefore, the authors need to prepare 3-5 slides in the format of Microsoft PowerPoint file too.
