  Sverdrup, Harald
Sverdrup is a unit of measure, the system of education in Norway, and a set of equations describing the movement of ocean currents.
Sverdrup is remembered not simply for a particular discovery or famous expedition but for his immense influence on the entire fields of oceanography and meteorology.
Sverdrup attracted top scientific talent, obtained an ocean-going research vessel, revised the curriculum, directed research attention to the California Current and organized expeditions to the Gulf of California where SIO conducted the first comprehensive hydrographic survey of that area.

Harald Ulrik Sverdrup (November 1888-August 1957) was a Norwegian oceanographer and meteorologist who made a number of important theoretical discoveries in these fields.
Having first worked in Bergen and Leipzig he was involved in the North Polar expedition of Roald Amundsen between 1917 and 1925, before taking the chair in meteorology at Bergen, where his primary interest slowly became oceanography.
He was made director of California's Scripps Institute of Oceanography (SIO) in 1936, initially for 3 years but the intervention of World War II meant he held the post until 1948.

Harald Ulrik Sverdrup was born in Norway in November 1888.
Under Sverdrup, SIO was transformed into a modern oceanographic institution, initially concentrating on study of the California Current and the Gulf of California.
Inspired during his SIO years to unite oceanic physics and biology, Sverdrup quantified the concept of "critical depth" (formulated earlier by the Norwegian H. Gran and the American G. Riley) in 1953, explaining the onset of the spring phytoplankton bloom in newly stratified water columns.

Sverdrup started his scientific career by enrolling as a student in ``physical oceanography and astronomy'' at the University of Oslo, where his early interests leaned towards the latter.
Sverdrup succeeded V. Bjerknes as the Chair of Meteorology at the Geophysical Institute in Bergen, Norway upon his return, and he additionally became a research professor at the Christian Michelson Institute in Bergen in 1931.
At Scripps Sverdrup initiated the Marine Life Research Program (still ongoing today), organized the first systematic course in oceanography given in the United States, and taught and collaborated such future reknowned scientists as Gifford Ewing, Donald Pritchard, Roger Revelle, Robert Reid and Walter Munk.

The previous speakers have given us interesting views of the "Maud" expedition, which was concluded 75 years ago, and of Harald Ulrik Sverdrup’s scientific influence as one of the founders of modern oceanography.
As far back as in 1902, Nansen wrote: "it is evident that the oceanographical conditions of the North Polar Basin have much influence upon the climate, and it is equally evident that changes in the condition of circulation would greatly change the climate conditions".
Consequently I heartily welcome the initiative taken by the organizers of the Sverdrup symposium, which is to be held the next couple of days at the Polar Environmental Centre in Tromsø.
