Bo Bodvarsson, Earth Sciences Division Director (2001-2006)

It has been nearly 10 years since our friend, colleague, leader, former Director of the Earth Sciences Division, passed away leaving the Earth Sciences family so abruptly at LBNL. Dr. Gudmundur Bodvarsson, or Bo as we all came to know him as, passed away on November 29, 2006. There will be several activities and formats in which Bo’s scientific legacy will be commemorated over the next few months. We hope that you will join us!

The first of which is a call for manuscript submissions!
