Geological field trips, as an important feature of the Internatioal Geological Congress, give the IGC participants every possible facility to study the geology and mineral resources of the country or region hosting the Congress. On the other hand, field excursions provide a good opportunity for the host country or region to present to the participants its unique geological conditions and the advances it has made in geoscientific research, and to discuss with them the confronting problems and the subjects that have aroused common concern in the world geoscientific community.
An extensive programme of field trips has been planned for the 30th IGC to show the typical features of continental geology in China. These trips are divided into three categories: Pre-, During- and Post-Congress. According to the response from the registrants, 79 of the 142 originally planned trips have been finally retained and list in the Third Circular. They highlight China's major orogenic belts, large-scale sedimentary basins, metallogenic belts with large or superlarge ore deposits of different genetic types, and a great variety of geological attractions. Natural hazards, environmental protection and fundamental geology are also the major emphasis of the excursions.
Guidebooks have been prepared and will be distributed to the participants prior to the start of each trip. In addition, six bound volumes of collected guidebooks, including some of the trips which were ultimately cancelled, have been compiled by the Field Trip Committee according to either discipline or region. They are:
Volume 1: Stratigraphy, paleontology, sedimentology, petroleum and coal geology, comprising field trips T106/T340, T112, T115, T302, T306, T313, T318, T320, T326, T348, T368,T381, T394 and T395.
