Complex studies were carried out, including structural and geomorphological analyses of space images and statistical processing of their deciphering results, which revealed the blocky pattern of the recent dislocations of Mahe Island, thus defining their relationships with a jointing pattern in granite outcrops. The results were compared with the geological data and instrumental observations of modern movements.
