IN MEMORIAM: A Tribute to Alexander Charles Rowney, BSc, BASc, MASc, Ph.D., P.Eng, D.WRE, F.EWRI, M.ASCE
Charles Rowney, PhD, was larger than life. A leader and innovator, he was a giant in the field of water resource modelling. In British Columbia, the enduring legacy of Charles Rowney resides in the web-based Water Balance Model suite of modelling tools. It is unfathomable to think he is gone. He was an unparalleled force: intelligent, creative, kind, appreciative, and master of his destiny. In the United States, creation of the Center for Infrastructure Modelling and Management (ncimm.org) in 2016 was a crowning achievement in the career of Charles Rowney.
