Fractures inTiantaishan Top

Fracturesare developed in the surrounding area of the top of Taintaishan. In the southernpart of the platform is obvious fracture structure. Two sets of fractures inthe SE and NW direction are developed in granitic gneiss, resulting in twoobvious fractures which are separately 10-750px and 50-3000px wide. Fractures graduallyexpand due to years of weathering and erosion, and the tablemount landform ofTiantaishan is formed by the expansion of surrounding fractures and thecollapse of the rock mass.
