Geophysical base of the Tectonic map of Ukraine at the scale 1:1 000 000

A geophysical base for the modern tectonic map at the scale 1:1000 000 has been built based upon generalization and reinterpretation of new generation of summary maps of magnetic and gravity fields of Ukraine, consideration of DSS and tektonophysical studies data for the large fault zones. Geologic-geophysical constructions at the level of crystalline basement surface reflect connections between the character of potential fields and elements of regional structural-tectonic zonation by the main fault zones of the upper part of the lithosphere. In particular, the scopes and underlying structure of the basic geological domains of Ukraine are specified, with real parameters of fault zones and their morfokinematic characteristics being reflected.
