Renoj J. Thayyen

It is with great sadness, we note the recent passing of Dr Renoj J. Thayyen, a valued member of the Himalayan glaciology community and of the International Glaciological Society. He recently came back from a field work in the Himalaya and was tested positive for COVID.

His death is a great loss for the glaciological community, especially the small Indian community. Renoj was a senior scientist at National Institute of Hydrology, India, and his research focused on glaciers, snow, and permafrost in the Ladakh region of India.

A full obituary will appear shortly on the IGS website and in a future issue of ICE.
