Dr Kenneth Thomson

It is with deepest sadness that we must announce that Dr Kenneth Thomson, one of the principle investigators on the North Sea project, died on Wednesday, 18th of April 2007.  Ken was the lecturer in Basin Geomorphology at Birmingham and an acknowledged expert on the interpretation and visualisation of seismic data.  Within the North Sea Project Ken was a pioneer and an inspiration to all who worked with him.  Beyond the project many people will have may have known Ken as an excellent companion or came into contact with him through his extensive research interests.  To us he was a great friend and irreplaceable colleague.

Ken will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
