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.
