In Memoriam (19th October 1960 - 26th September 2012)
Robert joined CASP in 1989. Over a 23 year career with CASP, Robert was driven to help solve the Arctic geodynamic jigsaw, and he established many Arctic research projects focusing on plate reconstructions, sediment provenance, Cenozoic uplift and erosion, and orogenic belts. Robert loved fieldwork and relished the challenges of the high Arctic undertaking field seasons in Svalbard, the Canadian Arctic Islands, Polar Urals, Novaya Zemyla and the Taimyr Peninsula.
