Claude Lorius passed away

The Ice Memory Foundation presents its most sincere condolences to the family of Claude Lorius.

With his death, we lose the founder of ice core science in France and one of the world's pioneers in the study of climate and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere thanks to ice cores. We will never forget that he was the first to believe in Ice Memory by supporting the initiative with his own money to launch operations to save ice memory of glaciers. Thank you Claude for all you have done. Rest In Peace.
- Jérôme Chappellaz, Ice Memory Foundation Chairman, Full Professor at EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne), CNRS – Senior Scientist
