    Evgeny Artushkov

    Born in 1937. In 1961 he graduated from the MSU Physical Faculty. In 1969 he defended the doctoral dissertation on geophysics and began to work in the Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth where he presently works. In 1966 he suggested the idea of inelastic crustal stretching as a mechanism of its submersion. In 1971 he showed that heterogeneity of density in the lithosphere created in it high additional tensions, which is one of the main mechanisms of drift of lithospheric plates (ridge push). In 1984 he, together with M. A. Beyer showed that large oil-and-gas pools form in areas of fast submersions of crust due to eclogitization.

    In 1971 he was elected a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. In 1977 for the monograph "Physical Tectonics" he got the State award of the Russian Federation. Together with a number of coauthors he found the new phenomenon of a sharp softening of the lithosphere due to the Rehbinder effect, related to formation of continental mobile belts. Together with A. P. Chekhovich he established that fast changes of sea depth in platform sedimentary pools are caused mainly by lithospheric uplifts and submersions.
