The purpose of this work is to fulfill tectonophysical study of the Earth's crust of the area of the river Ros upstream, followed by the petrological and isotope-geochemical study of rocks for the subsequent construction of geodynamic model of the western part of the Ukrainian shield (USH). Until recently, this part of the USH was the least studied using geological and geophysical methods. This article presents new results of tectonophysical and geological study of the area upper crust, performed in 2015.
Purpose. This study focuses on the analysis of structures and kinematics of the western closure of the Horlovka anticline to present a general development mechanism and to determine whether the structural complexity of the study area is consistent with a single regional stress field or not. Methodology. The kinematic and structural data available for the study zone have been studied. Further, fault data, including both the fault plane and slickenline orientations, and the sense of movement, have been studied by the kinematic analysis method of O.
