The deep seismic surveys in the southern South China Sea(SCS) are of vital importance for conjugate continental margins and the theory of formation and evolution of SCS.This paper firstly reviews the survey history,then analyzes the geological and geophysical characteristics and finally presents the significance of deep structure research in southern SCS based on comparing the conjugate continental margins with Newfoundland and Iberia.Deep structures of the southwestern sub-basin,velocity structures of sea mountains in the deep basin,and the whole rifting system could make breakthrough for the theory of formation and evolution of the SCS in the future.
