Marie Tharp's 1977 image of the world's ocean floor presented a view that
earth scientists had never before seen - Earth with its oceans drained.
Tharp's image that evolved with plate tectonic thought provided the graphic
synthesis that made plate tectonic theory the new reality. Her meticulous
attention to detail, her tenacity of purpose, her geologic sense, and her
artistic eye is made manifest by her near-iconic ocean floor image.
