Deformational regimes and kinematic conditions of modern tectonic faulting within the limits of the Mountain Crimea. 2

© Yu.M. Volfman, 2015

Description and analysis of stereographic models of deformational regimes of tectonic faulting and corresponding kinematic conditions given in part 1 [Volfman, 2014] have been continued. Models and examples of manifestations of fault, uplift and uplift-fault deformational regimes have been given. Naturally determined order of strain field orientations has been substantiated, which specified the processes of tectonic faulting in the Mountain Crimea area, inversion mode of kinematic conditions manifestation, special features of transformation of structure forming strain fields and accordingly deformational regimes as well as the role of tectonic faults of those or other structural-kinematic types (including blanket-thrust faults) in the structure of the region. Necessity has been shown to introduce some corrections to problems definition, methodology and interpretation of results of tectonic studies being conducted.

Key words: tectonic faulting formation, strain fields, deformation regimes, kinematic conditions, stereographic models, faulting, displacements, thrust-faults.
