Planetary Earth's crust deformations, Earth's rotation and lithospheric plates movement

© O.B. Gintov, 2001

Data of a tectonophysical study of the planetary mesocracking of the Volyn'-Podilla plate cover are considered. It is shown that at the end of Precambrian the Earth's rotation axis was situated in the area of the present equator and moved to its present position during 400 my (from Upper Vendian to Upper Yura). Methods of the calculation of the paleopoles and paleomeridians using data of planetary mesocracking studied in different continents and within large lithospheric plates are proposed. Possibilities of a theoretical substantiation of the rotation mechanisms are discussed.
