We were deeply saddened by the news about the tragic loss of Marty Bergmann in a plane crash at Resolute Bay August 20, 2011. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Marty. Marty was a very kind and enthusiastic person whose love of the Arctic inspired everyone he came into contact with.
We will miss the optimistic and dynamic attitude of Marty not only in FARO but also in the many other Arctic initiatives he contributed to. We lost a highly respected and most pleasant colleague and chairman.
On behalf of the Forum of Arctic Research Operators (FARO),
