Vertical Movements of the Earth's Crust

Vertical Movements of the Earth’s Crust

 

movements of the earth’s crust that cause a movement of the earth’s surface in a radial direction (for which reason they are also sometimes called radial movements of the earth’s crust). Usually, they are called oscillatory movements of the earth’s crust.
