RIP, Jack Lerbekmo

Jack Lerbekmo,Professor Emeritus in the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Alberta, passed away on Thursday, November 29.

To paraphrase David Eberth, our understanding of the Cretaceous - Paleocene chronostrat record in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin owes much to him. All of us who work in that area owe him a huge debt.
