Schmalz, Robert

Dr. Robert F. Schmalz (1929- ), a geologist with Pennsylvania State University, declared his support for a Tunisian-Algerian location for Atlantis, in an article in the Montreal Gazette of 26/8/77(a), citing dramatic changes in sea levels and land elevations as the cause of its destruction.
