Several massive geological tectonic movements from the north to the south and the formation of the Eurasian continent caused by the plate movement trend of “Scattering in the South and Gathering in the North”since the Jurassic and the Cretaceous Periods have resulted in a series of east-west giant mountains and basins and an even basin-mountain coupling zone in the central part of the Eurasian continent. This mountain chain in the central part of the Eurasian continent is also a series of east-west giant geographical corridors, such as the east-west giant terrain rain belt, runoff belt, and glacial belt. This mountain chain and its accompanying geographical corridors are the most important natural geographical belts that determine the spatial distribution of the Silk Road Economic Belt.
