Caption: Frederick John Vine (born 1939), British marine geologist and geophysicist. Vine studied at the University of Cambridge, obtaining his doctorate in marine geophysics in 1965. Together with others he helped develop the Vine–Matthews–Morley hypothesis relating to magnetic reversals in rocks surrounding the mid-ocean ridges. This was key evidence for seafloor spreading, continental drift and the theory of plate tectonics. Vine went on to work at Princeton University, and since 1970 has worked at the University of East Anglia. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society (1974) and received its Hughes Medal (1982) among other honours.
