Paper Abstract

Tectonic plate motion theory came into being in 1960s. It says what happens on Earth's crust and mantle and why tectonic plates move. There are few geophysical and geodetic techniques to measure plates' shifts. Some of them based on artificial satellites techniques. This presentation shows results received by two techniques: GPS (global positioning system) and SLR (satellite laser ranging).
