Additional Information


Albert Heim (April 12, 1849 – August 31, 1937) was a Swiss geologist. He is especially distinguished for his researches on the structure of the Alps and for the light thereby thrown on the structure of mountain masses in general. His magnificent work, Mechanismus der Gebirgsbildung (1878), is now regarded as a classic. Heim also devoted considerable attention to the glacial phenomena of the Alpine regions.
