News has reached us that yesterday, April 5th, 2022, Professor Alf Ottar Brubakk (°24 January 1941) passed away peacefully.

A long-time member and former President of EUBS (2006-2009), Alf has marked many of our lives with his intellect, wit, and honesty – always speaking his mind, inspiring many of us to try and do as good as him in science, and having great fun together ‘after work’. His contributions to the knowledge of diving decompression physiology place him in the gallery of the Greats.

He leaves a great legacy as well as a void in our hearts.
