In 1966 a group of enthusiastic pioneers founded the Institute for Meteorology and Oceanography Utrecht (IMOU). Twenty-five years later, in 1991, its name changed to Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht (IMAU). And this year, 2016, marks five decades of stimulating education and scientific research of the oceans, atmosphere and cryosphere at IMAU.
We celebrated IMAU’s 50th anniversary on Thursday June 23rd, 2016. Alumni, master students, faculty, staff and friends of the institute were all cordially invited to celebrate this milestone.
