Brückner, Eduard -

(1862-1927): Austrian meteorologist. He was a pioneer in reconstructing climatic conditions in northern Europe for the last 1000 years and discovered the 35-year fluctuations of damp-cold and warm-dry intervals known as "Brückner Cycles." He co-authored a major work with Albrecht Penck on the geology of the Alps as well as contributing to our understanding of the dynamics of mountain glaciers.
