Kukal, Zdenek

kukal1Zdenek Kukal (1932-2021) was a respected geologist and oceanographer who worked at the Czech Geological Survey, Prague.

He wrote a volume debunking the more extreme ideas regarding the Bermuda Triangle. In 1978, he published, in Czech, Atlantis in the Light of Modern Research, while a few years later Earth Science Reviews (Vol.. 21, 1984) devoted a special issue of a revised version, in English,  translated by Cesare Emiliani. Kukal favoured Santorini as the ‘inspiration’ behind the Atlantis story but as he stated, in a paper delivered to the 2005 Atlantis Conference on Melos, the story is fundamentally ‘pure fiction’.
