The Earth Institute’s State of the Planet blog recently featured a story headlined “8 Surprising Facts About Marie Tharp, Mapmaker Extraordinaire”.   

The institute, part of New York’s Columbia University, was celebrating the centenary of the birth of the American geologist and oceanographic cartographer who spent most of her career working at Columbia’s Lamont Geological Observatory.

Beginning in the early 1950s, Tharp, who died on 23 August 2006, “created some of the world’s first maps of the ocean floor”, the blog says.
