Using modern space geodesy techniques, the reference frame is established and maintained for the crustal movements. The crustal movement model in China and the adjacent regions is determined to provide with initial kinetic model for the study of the continental dynamics of China. The dynamic mechanism of the present-day crustal movements is investigated. In addition, the geodynamic mechanism is studied for the earth’s rotation variation.
