The purpose of the research is to determine the displacement of points of the Earth's surface in geological time based on the results of geopaleoreconstructions using the digital elevation model (paleoDEM). By approximating paleoDEM to the form of simple geometric shapes (biaxial and triaxial ellipsoids). their parameters are obtained, and the orientation relative to the ellipsoid that describes the geoid.
