About this book

Harold Ulik Sverdrup was a truly outstanding Norweigan scientist. His family background and education were strongly conditioned by contemporary Scandinavian culture, history and personalities. His scientific activities ranged from glaciology and magnetism of the Earth to meterology and oceanography.

This book places some of his most important contributions to geophysical science within the context of his own biographical background.
