Abstract

The oceanic rifts perform minor rotations that are only processes of stabilization and major ones connected with a reorientation of major structures. In the circum-Pacific zone these above major rotations all coincide chronologically with salient events of continental geology. On a small scale, the tectonic mobilities, intrusions, phases, etc., in oceans and in continents do not often show a global accord. A global coincidence becomes, however, obvious when paying attention to large-area relationships, in the transgression and regression behaviour, too which simultaneously suggests that even sedimentary events are primarily governed by endogenous tectonics, or are at least influenced by it. From a global point of view, there are signs of a rhytmical activity of oceanic rifts of 6 and 12 million years, respectively, to which, for example, could correspond a rhythm of 6 and 12 million years respectively, of the alpidic tectogenesis. In case the mass shift within the lithosphere should be a global process, then processes taking place within the cratons should also have global causes.
