Analysis of dynamic forces needed to form various deformation structures from the scale of a lithospheric plate to that of individual mineral grains and even the defects that are generated in the atomic lattice as a result of tectonic forces. For example 1) Drving forces for movement of lithospheric plates, 2) Recrystallization of minerals, creep generated plastic deformation in minerals or jogs, climbs, loops or other dislocations in the lattice, stress corrosion etc.
