Wallace Broecker graduated from Columbia College and received his doctorate from Columbia University. He has been a member of the Columbia faculty since 1959 and is currently Newberry Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1979 and was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1996. His research has tied the global transport of heat energy by ocean currents (the ocean conveyor belt) to abrupt shifts of the Earth's climate.
