Marie Tharp’s rigor and care in mapping the ocean floor revealed the Mid-Atlantic Rift for the first time, and provided thereby the mechanism for the continental drift model of geological change.  Her maps of the topography of the world’s ocean floors revealed a dramatic new world which caught the imagination of a new generation of oceanographers and oceanographic cartographers. You can read her full story (part of MAL’s Women in Science series) here.
