|With profound sadness we announce that our colleague Prof. Sergej Zilitinkevich passed away on February 15, 2021 after a short illness.
With his passing we have lost a leading scientist in atmospheric turbulence. He will always be remembered as an inspirational and enthusiastic scientist. He was scientifically active until very end, underlined by the fact that his most recent international project had a kick-off meeting last week. His contributions in INAR, in Pan Eurasian Experiment and in the atmospheric science field in general will be dearly missed. On behalf of INAR we would like to extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Iryna Bashmakova and the whole Zilitinkevich family. Markku Kulmala, Tuukka Petäjä, Hanna Lappalainen. See Prof. Zilitinkevich CV and list of publications.
