*Edward L. Miles –Scholar, Humanitarian, Bon Vivant, Teacher, Mentor and
Friend (1939-2016)*



It is with great sadness that I share with you the news that Ed Miles - an
extraordinary scholar in marine affairs, climate impacts, and environmental
management and founder and former director (1995-2010) of the Climate
Impacts Group – passed away on May 7, 2016, from complications of Lewy Body
Dementia. He was 76.



Ed’s impact was wide-ranging, both personally and professionally. He had an
unstoppable curiosity and powerful intellect, which he aimed at
understanding and addressing some of the world’s most complex science,
technology and environmental management challenges. Ed’s “only” criterion
was that a problem be “juicy” – complex, difficult and requiring the
combination of the natural sciences, the social sciences and law for its
solution. Ed took on those challenges with exuberance and innovation, and
in doing so profoundly shaped how the Northwest and the nation are tackling
climate risks and many other pressing challenges.
