In memoriam - Daniel Theophilus Akwa Okae-Anti (1955-2021)
The IUSS Secretariat was sad to learn about the demise of Professor Daniel Theophilus Akwa Okae-Anti, which occurred on the 20th of June, 2021. He was 65 years old.
He had been the Vice President of the Soil Science Society of Ghana. He was an Associate Professor with the Department of Soil Science, School of Agriculture, University of Cape Coast in Ghana. He was also a Commonwealth Fellow. Prof. Okae-Anti had over 50 publications to his credit in reputable journals all over the world. His contribution, notably "Significance of microtopography in a Gleysol" presented at the 2010 WCSS at Brisbane, Australia, to the Soil Science Community will forever be cherished. His numerous graduated students hold key positions across the globe.
His death is a tremendous loss for the Soil Science Community and for Soil Science in general.
