Web-site and Image Credits
For Dr. Peter Suedfeld's Home Page
All HTML scripts, layout, and hand-drawn images in this website were designed by the Webmaster, David Eichhorn, who reserves all legal rights to said materials and may be contacted for any questions or comments regarding this web-site. The exceptions are the small images associated with links to corporate or other organizational entities, such as Adobe (for Acrobat), the University of British Columbia, and the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research.
The following sources are greatly appreciated for the various photographic images throughout the site:
There are four different background images used throughout the site.
- The beautiful image of icebergs in Anarctica that comprises the title banner for, and inspired the colour scheme and theme of this entire web-site, comes from a postcard that Dr. Suedfeld has prominently displayed on his bookshelf for many years. The picture on the postcard was taken by, and appears by permission of Pat Cooper, an electronics engineer with the Engineering Technology Section of the British Antarctic Society, part of the Natural Environment Research Council. The photo is titled "Grounded icebergs in North Bay, Rothera Point" and was taken in 1996. The picture was modified for this web-site to make its edges blend together when it repeats.
- The portrait photo of Dr. Suedfeld appearing on the Biographic Main Page of this site was taken by his good friend and colleague, Dr. Stanley Coren.
- The pictures of Dr. Suedfeld and Dr. Steel in Antarctica were taken by Dr. Gary Steel now of Lincoln University in Canterbury, New Zealand, and at least one helper.
- The pictures of the REST chamber and flotation tank, appearing on the REST Topic Page, were taken by Dawn Brandlmayr, now in the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program at York University.
- The background for all three Main pages, the acrobat reprint page, and the Political Psychology page is an image of the Lambert glacier and Amery ice shelf in Antarctica taken by the Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) RADARSAT-1 satellite in 1997. The image is part of an Antarctic mapping project run cojointly by CSA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The image and a detailed caption are available at www.jpl.nasa.gov/images/earth/antarctica. All JPL and NASA images are made freely available for any non-profit use. The image was modified slightly for this web-site to make it "wash out" so that it would fade into the background.
- The background for the Complexity pages and for this page is an image of new sea ice forming in Antarctica. The original picture was taken by Paul Ward and appears on his comprehensive Cool Antarctica web-site. Paul Ward retains strict copyright over the images on his site. This image appears courtesy of his limited educational allowance. The image was modified for this web-site to make its edges blend together better when it repeats.
- The background for the Extreme & Unusual Environments pages is another image from JPL, this time from the planet Mars. The image was taken in October, 2003 by the Mars Global Surveyor orbiter. It features wind-blown terrain near the largest volcano in the solar system, Olympus Mons. The image and a full caption are available at http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA04919. All JPL and NASA images are made freely available for any non-profit use. The image was modified slightly for this web-site to make it "wash out" so that it would fade into the background.
- The background for the Holocaust Studies page is an image of the electrified fence at the Holocaust concentration camp Auschwitz. Permission to use the original photograph was granted by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum but exclusive copyright for the photo is contested by Yad Vashem, so this image is a meticulously hand-traced drawing that I did of the photograph myself. The drawing was modified for this web-site to make it "wash out" so that it would fade into the background.
As with the Auschwitz fence drawing, all other images, particularly the penguins, were painstakingly created and compiled exclusively for this site by David Eichhorn and all rights to them are reserved.
On a more personal note . . .
Special thanks to Dick Oliver, author of Sams Teach Yourself HTML 4 in 24 Hours (4th Ed.), where I learned almost everything I know about web-sites. Thanks also to Adobe for making my favourite graphics editor, Photoshop, and Apple for making the most cooperative computers on the planet. Thanks also to Yves Piguet for creating the super-easy freeware program "Gif Builder" which allows my penguin to jump in the water. Finally, thank you, Peter, for being such an excellent advisor and making graduate school some of the best years of my life so far. And for waiting so patiently for me to refine this web-site!
