Sad News about Peter Killworth

#1 Post by arango »

We received the sad news that Peter Killworth passed away yesterday (January 28th) after a courageous battle against Motor Neurone Disease. Peter was a world leader in ocean modeling and he recently received the Henry Stommel Research Medal from the American Meteorological Society for his contributions to ocean modeling and theoretical oceanography.

Peter was the founder and editor in chief of the Ocean Modelling Journal. We have all gotten his e-mails a few seconds after our reviews were due. I met Peter many years ago when I was a post-doc. He was very kind and willing to have a long discussion about ocean models. We will surely miss him.
