Early on September 28,1993 our friend and colleague, Ian Moore passed away after a brief but courageous fight with cancer.
Ian was born in Melbourne, Australia. He obtained his Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering (with honors) in 1973 and his Master of Engineering Science in Civil Engineering in 1975, both from Monash University. After completing his Ph.D. in Agricultural Engineering at the University of Minnesota in 1979, he joined the Department of Agricultural Engineering at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, as an Assistant Professor. In 1983 he returned with his family to Australia to work as a Senior Research Scientist in the Canberra Laboratory of the then CSIRO Division of Water and Land Resources as a hydrologist in the Physical Hydrology and Water Quality Program. He left the Canberra Laboratory in 1986 for an appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Agricultural Engineering at the University of Minnesota, where he was promoted to Associate Professor in 1989.
