The Fifth Special Volume of the journal Quaternary International is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Dr. Evgeny Larchenkov (1946-2012), a Co-Coordinator of the Working Group 6 “Structural Geology and Active Tectonics” of IGCP 521 and INQUA 501. Evgeny Larchenkov was Head of the Department of Physical and Marine Geology at Odessa I.I. Mechnikov National University and Academician of the Ukrainian Engineering Academy of Sciences. He was a high ranking specialist in structural geology, had a forceful personality, was a fine leader, an excellent teacher, and impressed all as an honest and energetic person with a great sense of humor. His scientific interests were related to the history of oil and gas development, the genesis of these resources, and the petroleum potential of the rift sedimentary basins of the Eastern European and Siberian platforms as well as the passive continental margins of South America, western Africa, and the western and southern parts of Australia. Within the IGCP 521 and INQUA 501 frameworks, he evaluated the role of active tectonics on sea-level change and coastal processes in the Black Sea, the Marmara Gateways, the Aegean Sea, and northern Turkey.
