Periodic crustal movement are mainly caused by ocean tides and changes of atmospheric pressure. In this project, the researcher has used the spherical harmonic coefficient of the ocean tide and actual observation data to study the impact on vertical crustal deformation due to changes of oceanic tide loading from 2012 to 2017 at the northeastern margin of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, based on the theory of crustal load deformation. The result shows that changes in oceanic tide loading have little impact on vertical crustal deformation compared with the impact of atmospheric loading at the northeastern margin of the Qinghai. The impact range of oceanic tide loading in this region is within ±3mm. In contrast, impact of atmospheric loading can reach ±12mm.
