It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of Harry Elderfield, on Tuesday 19th April 2016 after a short illness.
Harry Elderfield was Professor of Ocean Geochemistry and Palaeoclimate Research at the Godwin Laboratory, Department of Earth Sciences, Cambridge University. He was recognised for his contributions with several notable awards including the Lyell Medal in 2003 and the V. M. Goldschmidt in 2013. Harry participated in the original international GEOTRACES planning workshop in Toulouse in 2003 and was a mentor for GEOTRACES scientitsts. Creative, passionate, deeply involved in understanding the behavior of trace elements in the modern ocean but also how they are imprinted in the sediment for paleo issues, Harry was a guide for most of us. His death is a profound loss.
