The publishing house, PANGAEA, provides a short biography of the German climatologist and geophysicist, Alfred Wegener, at this website. Students and educators can discover the impact his book _The Origin of Continents and Oceans_ has had on the understanding of plate tectonics and continental drift. The site begins by recounting Wegener's early meteorological adventures in the North Pole. Through the vivid descriptions, users can then learn about the rejections he faced for decades before enough evidence was collected for most scientists to believe that continents do indeed move. This concise site offers individuals a chance to recognize a great scientist of our time.
