Revelle, Roger (1900-1991), was an American oceanographer, a scientist who studies the ocean. His pioneering work in deep-sea research contributed to plate tectonics, the modern theory that explains the origin of most of the major features of the earth's surface. Revelle also took an early interest in environmental and population-control issues that remain important concerns today.
