In Memoriam Remi Laane (1949 - 2016)

3 June 2016

It saddens us to announce the untimely death of prof. dr. Remi Laane a few days ago. Remi Laane was an affiliate professor at IBED, holding a special chair Marine Biogeochemistry supported by DELTARES.

His passing away is a great loss. For IBED in particular we have lost a very loyal special chair, and for the Netherlands in general we have lost a great expert in the field of marine biogeochemistry. Much of Remi’s work focused on the Wadden Sea and North Sea which he successfully conveyed to students and the general public alike. His excellent ability to communicate science is clearly evident from his many books which also reflect his love for the sea.
