国际地理联合会(IGU)主席 Ronald F.Abler 博士在林超地理博物馆(网络版)建设启动会上讲话

 

Distinguished, Officials, Revered Colleagues, and Dear Friends:

Today we launch the Digital Lin Chao Geomuseum Initiative. That name commemorates and memorializes one of the giants of Chinese and international geography. Lin Chao, Professor of Peking University, was born in 1909 and died in 1991. He accomplished much during a long and exceptionally full career that spanned great and disruptive changes in China, and more than minor changes in his chosen discipline. He led the Chinese geographical community into the International Geographical Union in 1949. Chao, Director of Institute of Geography of China, chose to serve his country and Chinese geography when he had several attractive and lucrative options abroad, including an offer in 1949 from the University of Liverpool, where he had completed his doctorate.

In addition to being a prolific author of penetrating scholarly publications, many devoted to human geography, physical geography, as well as environmental and ecological topics, Lin Chao was a dedicated and generous mentor to two generations of students, giving freely of his time and encouragement, and even from his own private funds when students needed such help. If his gracious spirit is with us today, as it certainly is in the form of some of his students, if not in other ways, I believe he is well pleased to have this ceremony held in conjunction with CODATA’s forty-fifth anniversary, not only much of his work relied on the careful analysis of sound data, but a new milestone of opening digital geographical knowledge and data in the information society. .

The International Geographical Union is honored and proud to be part of these proceedings. I pledge the IGU’s assistance in the further development of the Initiative. I also tender my deep personal appreciation to all those who have brought the initiative into existence, especially Professor Liu Chuang and her colleagues.

尊敬的各位嘉宾、各位官员、尊敬的各位同事,亲爱的朋友们:

今天我们启动林超地理博物馆(网络版)的建设, 这个名字是为了纪念和缅怀中国地理学界和国际地理学界泰斗之一 - 北京大学林超教授。林超诞生于1909年,过世于1991年。他长期的学术生涯和一生取得的成就,是在中国经历伟大的、翻天覆地的变化中度过和取得的,中国社会的巨大变化对林超教授选择他的地理学生涯也产生了不小的影响。1949年,林超领导了中国地理学界加入到国际地理联合会,此时,虽然授予他博士学位的母校-英国利物浦大学挽留他,在国外也还有几个诱人的、待遇优厚的职位供他选择,但是,当时作为中国地理研究所所长的林超,还是做出了为他的祖国和中国地理学服务的选择。

林超教授除了在人文地理、自然地理和生态环境等领域发表精辟的学术论文和著作外,他以他的奉献和宽厚培养了二代学生,他把他的时间都花在他的学生们身上,给他们鼓励,甚至当他们需要的时候,拿出自己的钱去帮助他(她)们。如果说,他的这种崇高精神今天依然与我们同在的话,这当然可以从他的学生们身上体现出来。我相信,他一定会非常高兴地看到,以他的名字命名的博物馆建设的启动仪式纳入到国际科学技术数据委员会(CODATA)成立45周年庆典大会的日程中,不仅仅是因为他的许多研究是基于翔实数据分析基础上得到的,它更标识在信息社会一个开放型、数字化、地理学知识和数据共享环境建设新的里程碑。

国际地理联合会(IGU)为能够成为林超地理博物馆(网络版)建设队伍中的一员而感到荣幸和自豪。 我承诺国际地理联合会(IGU)将会为该馆的建设提供帮助。我本人对能够把该馆建设的构思变成现实的每一位参与者表示由衷地钦佩,特别是刘闯研究员和她的同事们。
