Evgenii Vitalievich Sharkov was born in Leningrad (Saint Petersburg). He received a PhD in Leningrad St. University and D.Sc. in Soviet Academy of Sciences (Moscow). Now he is the Professor of Petrology at the Institute of Geology of Ore Deposits, Petrography, Mineralogy and Geochemistry (IGEM), Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow), and a lecturer at Russian State Geological Prospecting University (RSGPU, former MGRI), Moscow. He conducts research into igneous petrology and tectonics and has published about 400 papers in the field of the Precambrian geology and petrology, layered intrusions, igneous petrology and geochemistry of modern continental rifts, continental collision zones and oceanic floor, evolution of tectonomagmatic processes throughout the Earth’s history and comparative planetology. His professional memberships include: Academician of Russian Academy of Natural Sciences; Fellow of the Russian Petrographic Committee and Society of Economic Geologists (SEG); Member of the Russian Mineralogical Society, Geochemical Society (GS) and IAVCEI, Large Igneous Province Commission.

This book is devoted to different aspects of tectonic researches. New results and interpretations are presented here for diverse tectonic settings. Most of the chapters include up-to-date materials of detailed geological investigations, often combined with geophysical data, which can help understand more clearly the essence of mechanisms of different tectonic processes. Some chapters are devoted to the tectonic evolution of regions (East Antarctica, East Kazakhstan, Mongolo-Okhotsk orogenic belt), and others have dealt with the different aspects of tectonic events: influence of detachment structural deformation on pore structure evolution in shales, evolution of drainage in response to brittle-ductile dynamics and surface processes, soft sediment deformation structures triggered by the modern earthquakes, and post-opening deformation history of the Japan Sea back-arc basin.
