This Proceedings volume contains selected papers from two symposia which were held during the 29th International Geological Congress, Kyoto, Japan, 24 August--3 September, 1992. The first symposium --- ''Reconstruction of the Paleo-Asian Ocean'' --- contains 11 papers from a group of scientists working together in an international project of the same name. The goal of the project is to collect and evaluate petrologic and tectonic data within specific terranes so as to understand the geodynamic processes leading to the amalgamation of Asia. These papers represent vital geological discussions for interpreting the geodynamic maps being produced by the project. From the second symposium of this volume --- ''Quaternary Environmental Change'' --- 14 papers were selected. The wide range of topics can be divided as follows: Deep sea core analysis; Coral reef and nearshore environment; Paleoenvironmental analysis; Tephras, Loess and Pedology; River morphology and others.
