of the available geological and geophysical data using the modern theory of tectonic geology and the superimposed faults and depression. In addition, there existed relatively independent but still related involved five stages, i.e., initial rifting stage (E 2 s 4 ), intense faulting stage (E 2 s 3 ), fault-depression transition stage (E 3 s 1-2 ), differential uplifting stage (E 3 d), and depression stage (N-Q). According to the characteristics of tectonic development and evolution of the
