Study of dynamics of horizontal crustal movements in Europe according to GNSS observation (2000–2010)

The main aim of this work is the study of dynamics of crustal movements in Europe for the period from 2000 to 2010. Absolute and regional annual vectors of velocity of displacement of permanent stations are estimated and schematic maps of annual rate of displacement vectors are created, conditional crustal blocks (CCB) which stable kinematics of horizontal displacements of permanent stations are selected. Average annual velocities and directions of movement of these blocks are estimated. These results will be further used to study the crustal deformation in surveying region.
