Abstract

Consideration is given to the issues of studying current geodynamic processes in the upper crust within the Amurian lithosphere plate. Present-day geodynamic processes in the lithospheric layer are shown to be located by different indicators that correspond to geological features of comparable scale and varying extension and are recognized by a set of investigative techniques. A variety of original data on vertical and horizontal motions of the surface is used to indicate the latest deformation processes. The best studied Trans-Baikal block was used as an example to analyse present-day geodynamics in the context of the tectonic flows conception. The present ideas concerning the stress-strained state of the upper part of the section within the Amurian plate have been refined based on non-uniformly scaled factors.
