We mourn for our friend and colleague Prof. Dr. Gunter Menz

We deeply regret to inform that our SWOS team member Prof. Dr. Gunter Menz from the University of Bonn passed away on 9 August, 2016.

Gunter was a passionate geographer with heart and soul, driven by curiosity, taking every opportunity to visit unique and remote places and broaden his horizon.
He was always able to give helpful advice to SWOS, thereby giving his students huge freedom to pursue own scientific interests.
His calm and friendly nature shaped the lives and careers of so many graduates, in particular members of the SWOS team.
We will miss Gunter’s wisdom, his unconventional ideas, his inspiration.

The SWOS team
