About Marie Tharp: Marie Tharp was a pioneer of modern oceanography. She came to Columbia in 1948 to the Lamont Geological Observatory (now Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory) where she began work on mapping the ocean floor. Years later, satellite images proved her maps to be accurate. Her work is still a foundation for research and education in the ocean sciences.
