Binghui HE. Research Progress on Some Issues on the Emeishan Large Igneous Province[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2016, 31(1): 23-42.

The Emeishan large igneous province (ELIP) is located in the west of Yangtze plate, and is only recognized as a large igneous province by the international community, so many international and domestic scholars pay attention to it. This article mainly discusses some controversial issues: the uplift and denudation before eruption of the Emeishan basalt, the eruption age, axial position of the mantle plume, and summarizes achievements of predecessors. Because of the complexity of interaction between mantle plume and lithosphere, and imperfect of mantle plume model, real surface responses of mantel plume activity may be more complex. In the future research, scholars should strengthen mutual cooperation between different disciplines, and focus on the research about the process of deep dynamic of the Earth and the interaction among various spheres of Earth system.
