The National Oceanography Centre is deeply saddened to learn of the sudden death of Professor Laurence Mee, Director of the Scottish Association for Marine Science.
Laurence was a great advocate for marine science who communicated very effectively its importance to policy makers and led a number of major international initiatives. His influence was substantial as was his personal enthusiasm and commitment.
We extend our condolences to his family and friends and colleagues at SAMS and across the marine science community. We have lost a valued colleague who will be greatly missed.
