Abstract : In the territory of the Estonian SSR, surrounded on two sides by the sea and on the third side by the lake of Peipsi (Chudskoye lake), the vertical movements of earth's crust are quite distinct. The initial conclusions regarding the movements of the earth's crust were based on results obtained by the application of the sounding rod. These conclusions concerned the entire basin of the Baltic Sea. A series of differing plots was proposed for the distribution of isobases. (Author)
