GOV Co-chair resigns

Date added: Monday 21st July 2014

It is with regret that we have to announce that Eric Dombrowsky, Mercator Ocean, France has stepped down as co-chair of the GOVST in May this year. Eric resigned due to an illness.

As a very dedicated scientist Eric has led GODAE OceanView for the past 5 year together with Andreas Schiller. Complementing each other very well they have moved GODAE OceanView forward to establish an internationally valued and renowned programme. Eric's drive and commitment has been essential for GOV's development and the science team is very grateful for all his hard work.

Following Eric’s resignation we are happy to announce that Fraser Davidson, DFO, Canada has agreed to take on the challenge. We very much welcome Fraser as the new co-chair of the GOVST which he will lead together with Andreas.
