The main achievments on the study of the lithosphere in China during the past five decades are summarized in this paper. Based on the review of the study of the lithospheric structure determined by use of the data from deep geophysical procpecting and earthquake observation,the new developments on the continental lithospheric structure and geodynamics, the deep tectonic environment of the strong earthquake occurrence, and the problems of the deep structure related to the national economy are described. Finally, the prospects of the field on the study of lithospheric structure in China is presented.
