Professor Roderick Brown
It is with deep sadness that we share the news that our dear colleague Roderick Brown died on 11 August 2022. Rod has been with the University of Glasgow for nearly twenty years, and was an internationally renowned researcher in Earth Science. He was also an inspiring and innovative teacher for the undergraduate students, and a highly respected friend and mentor to many colleagues in the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences, the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Center, and other Universities including Melbourne where he spent many years. Rod was a wonderful character, entertaining and erudite with his stories and teachings, and sharing his passion for the outdoors and his running and sailing adventures. His kindness, generosity and dedication to helping others were renowned. He is a great loss, and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with Sue, Ruairidh and the rest of the family, and his many friends. You can leave a tribute to Rod at: https://forms.gle/KXzzBqNrzq2dMSbZ8
