Professor Zivko Skoklevski, one of the most active hydrologists in the Republic of Macedonia died in January 2004. He was born in 1937, in the village of Dambeni, Northern Greece (former Aegean Macedonia). In 1948 he moved to Czechoslovakia, where in 1955 he completed high school in Brno. In 1960 he graduated from the Faculty of Civil Engineering Hydraulic Department, Prague.

In 1966 he worked as a deisgner in the Regional Water Resources Institute. In 1969 he entered the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Skopje as an assistant, and he was elected to assistant professor for River Training in 1977. In 1979 he completed his PhD thesis in Stochastic Hydrology. He was elected as professor for the topics : Hydraulics, Hydrology, River Training and Waterways and Ports. He also had completed international master studies in Delft, the Netherlands in 1971/72.

During his work at the Faculty in Skopje he published two textbooks for the regular students and two manuals for post-graduate students. In cooperation with Professor Blagoja Todorovski he published the monogrpah: Intensive Precipitation in Macedonia, while after his retirement he published three more monographs about the River Vardar and Dojran Lake

In the period from 1984 to 1986, through the programme for International Scientific-Technical Cooperation of the Republic of Maceodnia, he lectured at the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Dares-Salam, Tanzania.

Professor Skoklevski had significant experience as researcher and designer in many areas of water resources management and hydro engineering, which was proved through his wide scientific and application activity. He made, alone and in cooperation with other colleagues, a number of feasibility studies and final designs, studies and expertises. He was actively involved during all his professional life in solving problems in water resources management in Macedonia and he worked in several professional and scientific associations.

Professor Skoklevski published many scientific and expert papers in scientific journals, international and national conferences and symposium proceedings.

With the death of Professor Skoklevski, the Faculty of Civil Engineering has lost a respected and highly appreciated colleague, an extraordinary pedagogue, a dear gollaborator and a very good friend. His retirement, several years ago, was not th eend of his professional work. He devoted himself with even more strength to writing and designing, and he has left to us his experience. For this life's determination Macedonian hydrologists are forever grateful.
