Special features of different rank faults (regional mantle, sub-regional intra-crustal and local ones) within zones of earthquakes centers, identified by both micro-seismic data and results of instrumental observations have been considered. The data of the Earth's crust structure along DSS geo-traverses and geo-trans-sect EUROBRIDGE-97, which pass near seismically active areas, are given. Amplitudes and average velocity gradients of neo-tectonic movements of the Earth's crust have been analyzed as well as local anomalies of values of heat flow density within seismically active regions. Potential seismically active zones have been distinguished together with maximum values of earthquake magnitudes possible to appear within their limits.
