Name:   Harry Hess
Nationality:   American
Country:   United States
  Harry Hess became a professor of geology at Princeton in 1932. His specialty was the study of arced chains of islands with active volcanoes. After the war he continued researching guyots and midocean ridges, as well as various mineral studies. In 1960 (and with further elaboration in 1962), he hypothesized that the sea-floor was spreading from vents in the Rift, where hot magma oozed up.
