This monograph specilized in the thermal theme of the Tibetan mechanics in its geological evolution is dedicated to systematic studies on all relevant thermal aspacts including the terrestrial heat flow measurements, the distribution pattern of the observed heat flow along a N-S proffile, the crust-mantle thermal structure and its North-Middle-South triple heterogeneity across the whole plateau. The main emphasis has been put on the close correlation between thermal and comprehensive geophysical fields and the intrinsic genetic linkage between tectonic deformation of terranes and thereby includ deep-seated and superficial thermal activities and responses. Such a brand-new approach combined with substantial absorption of available geoscientific achievements in geology, geophysics and geochemistry of Tibetan researchers has been uitimately developed into a synthetic idea of integrated tectonothermal evolution of the Tibetan plateau. Finally, a new prominet feature of coexisting thick and warm crust identified in addition to the world-famous mysteries of the successive amalgamation of terranes, the extremely thick crust and the rapid and accelerating uplift of the Tibetan Plateau
