Relationship of interpretive criteria of plutonic fractures to the character of the newest movements (Kazakhstan and central Asia as examples)
Analysis of the recent tectonics of individual regions on the basis of satellite photographs makes it possible to establish the role of discontinuous fractures in the formation of very large recent structures, and to classify the lineaments which were identified into discontinuous fractures of four types. The boundary orogenic planetary faults may be viewed as the antipodes of the deep faults of the rift valleys of the oceans. The differences consist in the fact that the deep faults of the rift valleys determine the separation zones, and the boundary orogenic faults determine the compression and thrust zones.
