Jointing of rocks of flish complex of the Ukrainian Carpathians between Opir and Oryava rivers, their tectonic significance

The article is devoted to importance of joints which are the most widespread structural elements of the earth's crust and are in all lithologic types of mountain breeds, for the study of the tense state and mechanical conduct of mountain breeds. Joints are the perceptible indicators of tensions at geotectonics development of territory. Determination of the real dependence of correlations between joints and reasons of their origin enables to use joints for paleotectonic reconstructions, and also at created models of reservoirs in oil geology.
