In Memoriam

This in memoriam page recognizes scientists, engineers, educators, administrators, or others who are now deceased and who advanced our understanding of Alaskan and global permafrost conditions and their relationships to the environment and society. The initial compilation is based largely on those who attended the international conferences on permafrost starting in 1963. Please help us in honoring others by submitting a name and related information to the USPA secretary.
