Sad news - IGS Honorary Member Professor Keiji Higuchi
Dear Cryolist members
It is with great sadness that the IGS reports the death of Keiji Higuchi, Professor Emeritus at Nagoya University. He was made an Honorary Member of the Society
His contribution to glaciology has many aspects, but notably in the polymorphic characteristics of snow crystals; pioneer initiative in the tropical glaciology
in the Himalayas, including initiating the work of glacier inventory in the Himalayas, introducing glaciology to tropical scientists. But above all his lasting legacy is the introduction of young scientists to Himalayan glaciology.
You can see a brief obituary on the IGS website https://www.igsoc.org/news/keijihiguchi/. A more detailed one will appear there shortly.
