Main scientific achievements
- There were revealed regional features of main stress axes of the study of focal mechanisms of strong and weak earthquakes in Azerbaijan;

- An assessment of stress state Earth"s crust of Azerbaijan is given.

1. It was established, that the Greater Caucasus, Lesser Caucasus and Talysh are characterized by near-horizontal stress compression, acting in submeridional direction across to regional structures of general Caucasus direction.

Stress state of Earth’s crust for Greater and Lesser Caucasus, Talysh is subordinated the general relationship existing with the Mediterranean mobile belt.

Fault motions comprise reverse and thrust displacement.

2. Kura depression is characterized by horizontal stress tension in connection with the regional structures of General Caucasus direction.

Obtained orientation of stress axes is subordinated the relationship existing with the Eastern Mediterranean.

Movements in a fault plane for focal zones of Kura depression contains normal and strike-slip.

3 Caspian region is characterized by the state of near-horizontal tension stress; obtained result accords with the existing distribution scheme of main stress for earthquake focal rift zone.

Fault motions comprise strike-slip (north of the Absheron peninsula).

Fault motions comprise normal and strike-slip (south of the Absheron peninsula).
