Inge Lehmann - the first lady to be commemorated on Frue Plads

Inge Lehmann, a seismologist who in 1936 discovered that the inner core of the Earth is solid and not liquid, was honoured at a symposium held at the University of Copenhagen this Monday. Thanks to a donation from The Carlsberg Foundation, Inge Lehmann and her scientific achievements have been given their own place on Frue Plads in front of the University.  The Inge Lehmann monument has been created by the artist Elisabeth Toubro and shows both the female scientist and her outstanding contribution to science.
