Hearing the sad news, I keep recalling his calm fruitful presence in the previous conferences of coasts, ports and marine structures held in Tehran, with his trailblazing keynotes being as inspiring as always to the countless students and researchers of coastal engineering in Iran. He will surely be missed this autumn in the ICOPMAS-2012, although his theories and morale will be perpetually present.Mohammad Reza AllahyarCoastal Engineering Dept., Ports & Maritime Organization of Iran.
