Tectonics and Sedimentation of South China Sea Region

26-27 May 2015
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

South China Sea region is a tectonically complex area and gains strong interest for different geoscience research projects for many years. The sedimentary basins developed in the margin of this region are also tectonically controlled. Different theories and concepts were introduced to explain the geology of the area. Limited data may constrain the development of the geological understanding of the region.

This workshop will bring key knowledge holders of the region and give the opportunities to those who are interested to exchange ideas. The objective of the workshop is to provide a big picture  of the geology of the region, understand the knowledge gap and hopefully provide a steer for future research projects.


Two days seminar and discussions, followed by a possible field trip if there is sufficient interest.
