This e-book provides an research of our present wisdom at the foundation of the Earth’s continental crust. There are facets to think about: tectonic and igneous techniques. Tectonic elements contain sedimentary accretion, terrane accretion, and continental collision at continental margins, in organization with plate subduction. those procedures bring about the formation of huge mountain belts, the build up of which accurately grows the continents. besides the fact that, those tectonic facets are enthusiastic about fabric recycling in the crust, and as a result don't give a contribution to volumetric progress of continental crust. Igneous techniques trouble separation of continental crust from the mantle and lead to the volumetric development of continental crust. as a result, the main target of this publication is to systematically study why and the way the Earth’s continental crust varieties, through comparing magmatic methods at island arcs the place new continental crust forms.
