A new addition to one of my favorite unofficial sub genres of nonfiction chronicles of obsessions as well as a fresh if problematic take on biography and science writing Soundings tells the story of a important neglected hard driving woman who changed the way the world s population conceptualizes the planet we all live onFelt reverses many of her precursors treatment of the particular scientific moment that oceanographic cartographer Marie Tharp was most productive She reinserts Tharp into the context of the revolution in geologic studies precipitated by the discovery of the mid Atlantic Rift and subseuently plate tectonics a development traditionally attributed to men she worked with The biography is incomplete because Felt was never able to interview Tharp herself and the cartographer was idiosyncratically private and modest To supplement missing information the biography is interwoven with Felt s experiences writing the book and uncovering the facts Tharp s life a storytelling tactic usually effective usually interestingOne of the overarching messages of the book is that the oceans floors have been and remain mysterious Just as much of Tharp s enigmatic personality is hidden under waves and scrolls of old maps the seabed is still vastly unexplored yet crucial to environmental challenges bearing down on us
