Description
Tanya Atwater is one of the pioneering scientists whose explorations and analysis in the 1960s? and 1970s led to the plate tectonics revolution in earth science. ?I was just having fun, playing mind games, and it was actually serious science. Indeed, those playful sessions resulted in three early papers in prestigious journals, summarizing the magnetic anomaly isochron patterns in the northeast Pacific and generalizing them to examine the effects of changes in direction of seafloor spreading.? - Tanya Atwater on using paper and scissors, to predict geometric relationships in the movement of the sea floor. http://emvc.geol.ucsb.edu/2_infopgs/IP1GTect/iTransFaultDemos.html
