英文摘要: Abstract(#br)The Pearl River Mouth Basin (PRMB), the largest basin in the northern continental margin of the South China Sea (SCS), has been one of the key areas to characterize geothermal field and thermal evolution of a passive continental margin. The thermal history of the Pearl River Mouth Basin is related to the seafloor spreading of the SCS in the late Early Oligocene. Heat flow measurements show that the PRMB is characterized by a high background heat flow with average heat flow of 71.8 ± 13.6 mW/m 2 . The present-day heat flow of the northern SCS increases from the northern shelf with the thick crust to the southern slope with the thinned crust. This study employs forward and inverse modeling to simulate the rift and post-rift processes exampled by four wells at different...
