On substantiation of mechanism of lateral extrusion the earth crust of the Mountain Crimea

© V.V. Gonchar, 2015

Numerical modeling of the crust deformations in the section of the Southwest Crimea subjected to rear indentor compression from the side of the East-Black Sea depression has been fulfilled taking into account regularities of seismic activity distribution. As a result mechanism of lateral extrusion has been specified, thrust-fault of orogen to the West-Black Sea depression is predicted.

Key words: Southwest Mountain Crimea, lateral extrusion, seismicity.
