Tectono-thermal modeling is based on the geological-geophysical models of basin formation,which include kinematic model, kinematic-rheological model and dynamic model. Kinematic models have predominance in predicting heat flow but weakness in simulating basin geometry; Kinematic-rheological models are adept in tectonic modeling, but identical with kinematic models in heat flow prediction;Dynamic models contain latent advantages and also some obstacles in tectono-thermal modeling. Future study should put emphasis on further improvement of tectono-thermal models and its matching with reverse models.

Key words:  Sedimentary basins      Tectono-thermal modeling      Kinematic model      Kinematic-rheological model      Dynamic model.
