Gerald J. Wasserburg (March 25, 1927 – June 13, 2016) was an American geologist. He became John D. MacArthur Professor Emeritus of Geology and Geophysics at the California Institute of Technology. He is known for his work in the areas of isotope geochemistry, cosmochemistry, meteoritics, and astrophysics.
After leaving the U.S. Army, where he received the combat infantry band, he graduated from high school and attended college on the G.I. Bill. Wasserburg completed his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago in 1954, with a thesis on the development of K-Ar dating under the direction of Professors H. C. Ureyt and M. G. Inghram. He joined the Caltech staff in 1955 as an Assistant Professor, being appointed Associate Professor in 1959 and Professor of Geology and Geophysics in 1962. In 1982 he became John D. MacArthur Professor of Geology and Geophysics, a position to which he retired in 2001. Together with Typhoon Lee and D. A. Papanastassiou, he discovered the short-lived presence of the radioactive isotope 26Al in the early solar system and with William R. Kelly the equally short-lived presence of 107Pd.
Hunt describes that “it was a very enriching experience where I was able to incorporate new knowledge, tools, but also other points of view about the role of mining in the economy of the countries”.
He also emphasizes that “the graduate department of mineral economics at Colorado is currently very focused on the study of metals markets, analysis of critical materials, and sustainability issues. In this line, the engineer emphasizes that “I believe that these aspects today are very much in need in Chilean universities, mainly in the focus of sustainability and in the ESG (Environmental, social and corporate governance) line”.
First, it is important to note that my doctoral studies were developed in the area of mineral economics, where this university maintains a great prestige. This is due to the quality of its academics, its extensive list of graduate courses in the area, and its varied lines of research, including the analysis of commodity availability. This motivated me to apply for this internship in order to learn from the experience of the professors and additionally to be able to take subjects with a high degree of specialization within the metals markets.

The Departments of Geography and Geophysics of the Universidad de Concepción are organizing the Third Congress of the Chilean Cryospheric Society, an institution of scientists and professionals who investigate the situation of glaciers and ice fields in Chile, the continent and Antarctica. The event will be held online on March 17 and 18, after the face-to-face activity that was to be held in Concepción had to be suspended.
The Congress will allow the exhibition of some 50 scientific papers, about 20 of them in oral presentation, including almost a third of research conducted by undergraduate and graduate students from various careers related to the behavior of the planet’s ice and its changes due to the greenhouse effect and other natural variables or effects of human action.
Regarding next week’s event, he explained that “the works presented at the Congress range from Antarctic topics to studies of climate changes associated with glacier fluctuations in the Andes Mountains”.

On February 15, 2017, the National Accreditation Board granted it the superior category of excellence, for its results in the integral formation of the student body, research and its impact on the municipality, the nation and abroad.
The history of the CUJAE has its antecedents in the former School of Engineers, Electricians and Architects of the University of Havana, created on June 30, 1900, when military orders were issued for that purpose. It began in the former convent of San Agustín, today the Carlos J. Finlay Museum of the History of Medicine, and later moved to La Colina, attached to the Faculty of Sciences and Letters of that University Center, with the careers of Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering.
