    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    Born in the Netherlands, Tjeerd H. van Andel came to the United States in 1957. He taught at Scripps Institute of Oceanography and Oregon State before coming to Stanford in 1976. He was an authority on the geology of ocean floors and mid-ocean ridges, with an interest in the prehistory of landscape and civilization which has led to work on climatic change and its economic ramifications. He was a co-leader of Project FAMOUS (French American Mid-Ocean Undersea Study), data from which led directly to the confirmation of plate tectonic theory. Van Andel died in 2010.
