NOAA Mourns CIMMS Director Dr. Peter Lamb

NOAA Mourns CIMMS Director Dr. Peter Lamb

We are sad to note the passing of friend and colleague, Dr. Peter Lamb, who passed away unexpectedly May 28, 2014. 

“Peter was a brilliant scientist, an advocate for the important work that we all do, and a friend,” said Craig McLean, Acting Assistant Administrator for Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.  “Our community is remarkably smaller today, as his presence and good will have been so large.”

“Peter Lamb was a colleague, mentor, friend, and strong advocate for cooperative research between the university community and NOAA.” noted Philip L. Hoffman, OAR CI Program Director.  “He offered leadership to his peers when they needed it, and he was enormously successful in making the Cooperative Institute community as strong as it is.”
