ABSTRACT
A kinematic model of recent crustal movements has been created for the territory of the Republic of Croatia and the neighbouring Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The model is based on the laws of uniformly accelerated-decelerated motion, with motion parameters presented in the form of grid models. This kinematic model stems from models of relative height displacements of the Earth’s crust determined on grounds of three different epochs of height positioning of the same benchmarks. The benchmarks are contained in three levelling networks of geometric levelling of the highest order of accuracy, surveyed from 1874 to 1973. Thanks to this kinematic model, it is possible to determine the relative height movements and the velocity of crustal movements for any discrete point or a group of points having a known ellipsoidal position on the territory of the Republic of Croatia.
