Walter Munk – Remembering The Einstein Of The Ocean.
Voice of Biotecnika – Episode No 44
“PEOPLE SHOULD TREAT THE OCEANS LIKE WE DO ANYTHING ELSE THAT WE CARE ABOUT – WITH CONSIDERATION, WITH CARE, AND AFFECTION. THAT’S IT. FOR THAT, WE MUST EDUCATE.”
These are the words of a high-spirited scientist-explorer whose insights on the nature of winds, waves, and currents earned him global fame and recognition.
A warm welcome to another exciting episode of Biotecnika’s very own podcast- the Voice of Biotecnika. Today we will take you to explore through the journey of a science explorer who loved the seas and lived with the seas- a short insight into the life and achievements of the world-renowned oceanographer – Walter Munk.
Known as the Einstein of the Oceans, Walter Munk lived a century questioning and solving the mysteries of the deep blue seas. Where do waves come from? Is our planet getting warmer? Can a sinking treasure house be saved? Seemingly unconnected but these were a few questions that challenged the restless mind of this remarkable man.
