East of the Velke Vrbno Dome, the important Ramzova tectonic line is situated with the Branna Group of probably Devonian age (Middle Paleozoic, around 380 million years) behind it, which covers only a small, south-eastern section in the map.
An earthquake at the M8 level has occurred at intervals of 1,000 years on average in the 150-kilometer active fault zone that runs from Nagano Prefecture to Shizuoka Prefecture along the Itoigawa-Shizuoka tectonic line. The council says areas around the fault have the highest likelihood of being hit by a big quake as about 1,200 years have already passed since the last major earthquake in the area.
The committee will also evaluate the probability of a quake occurring in the Median Tectonic Line (Chuo-kozosen) fault zone which stretches for 1,000 km from the Kii Peninsula to Shikoku, as it could cause extensive damage.
The Tectonic line now encompasses 40 items, including back wraps and ankle, wrist and elbow supports that are sold in leading chain drug stores, including CVS Corp.
The western termination of this crystalline units presumably follows the tectonic line that belongs to the Diendorf fault system.
A WNW-ESE tectonic line borders the granite on the west.
The genesis of serpentinites, which locally occur at tectonic lines, is associated with similar settings.
The tectonic situation in the surroundings of the cave is analysed in detail by Hartvich and Valenta (2011), who tried to link the measured faults with the tectonic lines in the vicinity.
* erosion susceptibility is selective: the lowered areas occur only along tectonic lines and is not marked in the slope of profile line.
Subsidence basins are placed over tectonic faults (called as well tectonic lines) and uplift basin over a central part of the deposit (centers of horizontal projections of the basin and the deposit overlain on each other).
Also the Knehyne cave was formed on intersection of tectonic lines. Predominant system is represented by vertical, E-W (280-110[degrees]) trending fissures, on which also the "Dom objevitelu" (Hall of discoverers) has been formed.
