This booklet provides an research of our present wisdom at the starting place of the Earth’s continental crust. There are features to think about: tectonic and igneous approaches. Tectonic points comprise sedimentary accretion, terrane accretion, and continental collision at continental margins, in organization with plate subduction. those methods lead to the formation of enormous mountain belts, the build up of which accurately grows the continents. despite the fact that, those tectonic features are fascinated about fabric recycling in the crust, and for that reason don't give a contribution to volumetric progress of continental crust. Igneous techniques hindrance separation of continental crust from the mantle and bring about the volumetric progress of continental crust. hence, the focus of this booklet is to systematically learn why and the way the Earth’s continental crust types, by way of comparing magmatic strategies at island arcs the place new continental crust forms.
