Neotectonics, a subdiscipline of tectonics, involves the study of the motions and deformations of the Earth`s crust (geological and geomorphological processes) which are current or recent in geologic time. The term may also refer to the motions/deformations in question themselves. Geologists refer to the corresponding time-frame as the neotectoni.
