Nowadays Geophysics is at a new starting point,after it goes through the imporatant development period of dual revolution of tectonic plate and planetary interstellar exploration in the 20~(th) century.The geophysics is now facing more challenges than before,especially in current complex situation of economic globalization and sciencific golbalization.Obviously,geophysics has stepped into a new era,an era filled with unprecedented discoveries and outbreak opportunities.However,contemporary Chinese geophysics is going to weanken and eliminate gradually,i.e.faces rigorous "crisis".Where are going for chinese geophysics in the new time of 21~(st) century? Where are crisis that geophysics faces? Where are geophysics opportunities? Which position does geophysics take ini the long river of social development and scientific advancement? Which role does geophysics,play? Chinese people must pay sufficient attention to geophysics.Chinese geophysicists are willing to take up our due responsibilities for Chinese geophysics.These will shorten the distance between our level and the world advanced level and offer strong supports to our scientific and technological davancement.Several problems are discussed as follows:(1) The developmental guide direction and the strategic significance of geophysics.(2) Main great achievements of geophysics in the 20~(th) century.(3) The developmental trend and crisis of contemporary geophysics in China.(4) Where are going for contemporary Geophysics in China.
