During 19-22 October, nine participants of the 9th Hutton Symposium took part in the post-conference field trip-2b to visit the Meihuashan granitic batholith and Longyan Aspiring Global Geopark in the Longyan City, Fujian Province. Participants are professors, associate professors and postdocs from Germany, France, South Africa, Morocco, Canada and China. Professors Nikolas Bagdassarov in the Goethe University Frankfurt, Faouziya Haissen in the Hassan 2 University of Casablanca, and Jinhai Yu from Nanjing University took part in this trip. Leading by Prof. Zhenyu He, the participants examined the main rock types of the Meihuashan granitic complex and the geological relics and cultural heritages of the Longyan Geopark. This field trip got warm welcome and help from the Longyan Geopark.

The Meihuashan granitic complex is located in the area where the east-west-trending Nanling granite belt intersects the north-east-trending coastal granite belt in SE China, with an area of > 1000 km2. It is a complex mainly composed of the “Caledonian” (Early Palaeozoic), the Indosinian (Triassic), the Early Yanshanian (Late Jurassic) and the Late Yanshanian (Early Cretaceous) granitoids, which provide one of the best examples of multi-episode granite batholith in SE China.
