"Obituary Jean Pierre Carbonnel"
Obituary Jean Pierre Carbonnel It is with sadness that the passing of our colleague and friend Jean- Pierre Carbonnel is noted. He died on 10 April from lung cancer. Throughout his career as a researcher in the French CNRS he was an active hydrologist, working in many parts of the world, especially Cambodia, Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Romania and Bulgaria, where he studied rainfall, lakes and rivers. He published more than two hundred scientific papers. In recent years he was a research advisor to the French Ministry of Environment. And, lately he was involved in the history of hydrology and last year organized a successful meeting on this theme in Dijon. He was also a member of the UNESCO/WMO International Standing Committee on Hydrological Terminology, in charge of writing the third edition of the International Glossary of Hydrology. Goodbye, Jean Pierre, we miss you. Pierre Hubert, Secretary General, IAHS IAHS Newsletter n°75, July 2002
