Leanne Armand Death – Obituary – We are deeply saddened to report the passing of our colleague Prof. Leanne Armand on January 4th after a valiant battle with a highly aggressive cancer. As most of you know, Leanne was a major force in IODP from 2017 to 2021, both as ANZIC Program Scientist and later as ANZIC Director. Her contributions to scientific ocean drilling were profound, as she ably guided the ANZIC Program Member Office through the critical period that saw the development of the 2050 Science Framework.
