By Ren Wang, Keiiti Aki

Geodynamics issues with the dynamics of the worldwide movement of the earth, of the movement within the earth's inside and its interplay with floor positive factors, including the mechanical approaches within the deformation and rupture of geological constructions. Its ultimate item is to figure out the riding mechanism of those motions that is hugely interdisciplinary. In getting ready the fundamental geological, geophysical facts required for a complete mechanical research, there also are many mechanical difficulties concerned, this means that the matter is coupled in a classy demeanour with geophysics, rock mechanics, seismology, structural geology and so forth. This topical factor is an element I of the court cases of an IUTAM / IASPEI Symposium on Mechanics difficulties in Geodynamics held in Beijing, September 1994. It addresses various points of mechanics difficulties in geodynamics concerning tectonic analyses, lithospheric constructions, rheology and the fracture of earth media, mantle movement, both globally or locally, and both via ahead or inverse analyses or numerical simulation.

And ZENG, 1995). This result of Q value is remarkably similar to that obtained by FENG and ZHOU (1985). They can be explained by the existence of double crust due to the penetrative Indian plate. 6. , 1994). A low resistivity thin layer (1-10 Q . m) at a depth range of 15 - 25 km has been detected (Fig. 9). The numerical numbers in the figure are the magnitude of electrical resistivity in the unit of Q. m. This low resistivity thin layer can be compared with the discontinuity hI of Figure 4 from receiver function results.
