MAJOR NEOTECTONICALLY ACTIVE LINEAR FAULT ZONES IN LITHUANIA. S. Šliaupa, Geological Survey of Lithuania, Vilnius, Lithuania

Regional neotectonically active linear zones distinguished in the territory 0f Lithuania represent the principal structural framework that control 346 the general pattern of neotectonic movements. These linear structures are related, as a rule, to the major tectonic zones of the crystalline basement that were established in Early Precambrian time. These are commonly wide fault zones of the basement and are represented as wide neotectonically active linear zones (NALZ). The structural styles of the major NALZ are quite different ana mirror the main features of their deep structure.

NEOTECTOHIC STRESS FIELDS OF THE EAST EURO PE AH PLATFORM (EEP) AHD ADJACEHT STRUCTURES*. L.A. SIM, Moscow State University, Moscow

The results of the neotectonic stress fields reconstruction within the East European platform (EEP) and adjacent areas made for the first time using the analysis of secondary disturbances are given. The main factors responsible for neotectonic deformations are rifting in the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans (northern and western EEP) and orogenesis in the Caucasus and the Carpathians (outhern EEP).

 

NEOTECTONICALLY ACTIVE FRACTURES IN THE TERRITORY OF THE UKRAINE*. V. P. Paliyenko, Institute of Geography of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, Kiev

The paper presents the diagnostic evidences and criteria of determination of neotectonically active fractures in the territory of the Ukraine. Spatial regularities of variation of the velocity gradients of neotectonic and contemporary crustal movements which are the main indicators of activation along fractures are characterized. Specific features of different regimes of contemporary movements along fractures are revealed.
