Based upon materials collected by the author in recent years various types of nappe structures are here listed, with discussions of the manner and time of their formation. It is suggested that this kind of structures was produced due to the push-slipping of a series of fractured piece, that were formed along the upper part of earth’s crust during the continental collision. As a result of collision and compression of the continental blocks these structures are developing. To author’s considers that the study of nappe structures is of practical significance in reconstracting the geological environment of a certain region and furthermore it can also be served as a theoretical guide to the study of the mode of crustal movement etc.
