Li Dewei. THE STYLE OF CONTINENTAL STRUCURE AND MODEL OF CONTINENTAL DYNAMICS[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 1993, 8(5): 88-93.
Based on the recent studies of continental structure,the basic patterns of continental structure were summarized,the tectonic model of five layers and two domains on continental structure was presented. From the relationship between state of heat and rock deformation, the continental dynamics mechanism - layering flow and upward-sinking was established. Continental structures are pounding at the basement of plate tectonics. Geologists in China have excellent geologic condition and face a good chance of historic challenge.
