    In Loving Memory of Steven Banwart

    Today, our hearts are heavy as we come together to honor the memory of our cherished friend and colleague, Steven Banwart, affectionately known as "Barney" to many of us. It is with deep sorrow that we share the heartbreaking news of his passing on December 30th due to a massive cerebral hemorrhage stroke. Steve's departure has left an irreplaceable void in our lives, but as we gather to celebrate his extraordinary life, let us also reflect on the enduring legacy he leaves behind.

    Steve was not just a scientist; he was a beacon of inspiration in the world of scientific discovery. He dedicated nearly three decades of his life to the development of the "critical zone" concept, leaving an indelible mark on the British, European, and global critical zone communities. His roles as Dean for Global Development, Director of the Global Food and Environment Institute, and Leadership Chair in Integrating Soil/Agriculture/Water Research at the University of Leeds underscore his commitment to groundbreaking research.

    Among his many accomplishments, Steve's leadership as the Principal Investigator of the European SoilTrec project from 2009 to 2014 stands as a testament to his visionary spirit. This project played a pivotal role in uniting the European critical zone community and set the stage for similar initiatives worldwide. Steve's unwavering dedication and passionate advocacy for an integrative scientific vision enriched our understanding of the critical zone.

    Yet, Steve's greatness extended far beyond his scientific achievements. He was a compassionate and empathetic human being, always lending a listening ear to his colleagues. His authentic concern for others, coupled with his unwavering belief in the significance of critical zone research, made him a beloved figure in our scientific community.

    Steve's commitment transcended the confines of the laboratory. He actively contributed to the IAGC community as the Chair of the GES working group and served on the council since 2012. His tireless efforts in promoting our association's mission exemplified his dedication to advancing our shared goals.

    For many of us, our connection with Steve extended beyond the boundaries of science. His infectious spirit and camaraderie endeared him to us as not just a colleague but a cherished friend. Steven was not only a friend but a guiding light who helped us navigate the complexities of life and science. Though his absence leaves a void that cannot be filled, his legacy will forever inspire us. In his memory, we pledge to carry forward his important research and uphold the values he cherished. While we mourn his passing, we find solace in knowing that his spirit lives on in the hearts and minds of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

    As we grieve the loss of this exceptional individual, our hearts reach out to his family during this difficult time. We share in their sorrow and offer our deepest sympathies.

    To Steve's family, we extend our heartfelt condolences. Rest in peace, dear friend.
