Richard Honrath

Summit Station community members—indeed, all of us at CPS—mourn the untimely passing of Richard Honrath (Michigan Technical), who died in a kayaking accident on Michigan’s Silver River on April 17th. Dr. Honrath, along with collaborator Detlev Helmig (U Colorado), established two major atmospheric chemistry projects at Summit last year, one funded by NSF and the other funded by NASA. He was expected to depart for Greenland’s ice cap shortly after finishing the fateful kayak trip. MTU’s memorial page offers a place where those who knew Richard can post a message. We will miss Dr. Honrath at Summit this summer, and send our condolences to his loved ones.
