Michael R. Rosen

Our friend and colleague Michael Rosen, Chair of the Board of Directors of the International Association of Limnogeology (IAL), passed away on April 27, 2021 from complications after surgery related to pancreatic cancer.  He was a steady captain of the IAL since its foundation. A geologist enamored of lakes, a musician, and a knowledgeable birder, he was always ready to help the lake community stay connected and move forward together. We will be celebrating his life and his science during the next IAL-IPA conference in Bariloche, Argentina in 2022. 

The Michael R. Rosen Research Award in Limnogeology has been set up to support graduate student research in the field of limnogeology. If you would like to donate, please visit the fund’s GSA Foundation page.
