Irish workshop-Travel Expense

Travel expense Estimation:
(15 people join this field trip, Francis and Taiwanese folk share the travel expense of Paul Ryan and John Dewey)
(Dennis, Cristina, and Bob will pay their own expense)
Hotel (Convent Guest House, www.theconvent.ie)
70  (per person) x  8 (days) =     560  Euro
Rental Bus
2590 /15 = 173 Euro/person
Total:                      733     Euro/person
Sharing hotel fee for (Ryan and Dewey)
70  x  2  x  8  = 1120 Euro
Airfare (Dewey)
170 Euro
173 x 2 = 346 Euro
 Total sharing expense for Ryan and Dewey
1120 + 170 + 346 = 1636 Euro
Francis shares 818 Euro
Taiwanese folk share 818 Euro (91 Euro/person)
Dennis, Cristina, and Bob : 733  Euro
Francis : 733 + 818 = 1551 Euro
Taiwanese folk : 733 + 91 = 824 Euro  (NT 29697 /person)

Comparative Studies of the Tectonophysics of Taiwan and West-Ireland Orogenies workshop


With the advances made in recent years on surface geology, subsurface geophysical velocity/electrical-resistivity imaging and geodesy, among others, Taiwan has become one of the best studied active orogens. We are now in a position to pose and test hypotheses of how Taiwan evolved as a mountainous island in the recent few million years. As a young structure, however, the materials under the mountain ranges are not totally exposed; thus additional constraints are need in interpreting available observations in terms of minerals and rocks and the ongoing geological processes. To explore possible orogenic models we may resort to reexamination and comparison of other, and especially, old orogenic belts, some of which are deeply eroded and thus the materials in the core of the mountains are now exposed. On the other hand, for the Taiwan orogen our knowledge of the plate tectonic framework, the subsurface structures under various parts of the orogen, the kinematics of the orogeny based on earthquake mechanisms and GPS measurements, the possible rheological properties of the crust or even current temperature in the core of the mountains provide clues of conditions at depth during the active phase of orogeny. By using “the present” (i.e., Taiwan) as “a key to the past” and the “past” (the exposed core of old orogens) as “a key to the depth” is the best we can do to improve our knowledge for mountain building as a whole.

One of the ancient arc-continental orogens that appears to share several common tectonic characteristics with Taiwan is the west Ireland Lough Nafooey (arc)-Laurentian margin collision (the Grampian orogeny) (Figs. 1 and 2). It took place in early-mid Ordovician (475-462 m.y. bp). From each of the mountains around the world, depending on the age and degree of erosion we may compare field evidence and distill/test ideas concerning detailed geological processes of orogeny. While the materials internal to the different provinces of the ancient (inactive) orogen provide examples of what could be underneath the Taiwan orogen, the rheological properties of the crust gained from seismic data.
