Results of the structural-tectonic analysis of Northern Antarctic Peninsula and its western continental shelf's are presented at the article. Main factors of the tectogenesis that generated geomorphology of region are determined. Block composition of shelf and paleoflow’s lines are reconstructed to different spatial scales on the basis of morphological structure's and glacial genesis's schemes, that are presented at the paper. Classification of longitudinal and transverse faults is developed.
