Message from Prof. Emmanuel Reynard about the accident

Dear colleagues of the IAG working group on Geomorphosites,

We are very sad to inform you that our Slovenian colleague Bojan Erhartic (born in 1979), from the Anton Melik Geographical Institute in Ljubjana, some days ago in a flight accident. According to our colleague Blaz Komac, he was on a flight across the Julian Alps and when flying back to the Portorož airport the airplane hit an electric cable, the wing was tear off and the plane crashed.

Bojan has been very active, with his colleagues of the Geographical institute, in the working group on Geomorphosites. He was a pioneer on geomorphological sites research in Slovenia and developed several studies on the Slovenian geomorphological heritage and geotourism, and participated actively to the development of the Slovenian school of geomorphology. Several of us met him at the last Conference on Geomorphology on Paris, where he was plenty of projects for the future.

All our condolences to his family and colleagues,

For the whole working group,
Emmanuel, Paola and Fabien
