Christoph Breitkreuz CV
Born in Berlin in 1955, Christoph Breitkreuz studied geology at the TU Berlin. He completed his PhD at the same university in 1982 with a topic on Mesozoic plutons in the Coastal Cordillera of northern Chile. He completed his postdoctoral degree (habilitation) at the TU Berlin in 1986 with a revision of Paleozoic volcanosedimentary successions in northern Chile.
After a research stay at the University of Kansas (1992-1994), Christoph Breitkreuz received a Heisenberg Fellowship (1995-2000), which he spent at the GFZ Potsdam. This was also the start of his research on Late Paleozoic volcanic and subvolcanic systems in central Europe – a topic that has formed his research activities ever since. He has been a full professor at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, where he established a Centre for Volcanic Textures with more than 3000 samples, since 2000.
Sergio Rocchi CVFull professor at the University of Pisa, head of the Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra.
Research activities: Magma emplacement in tabular igneous intrusions and link to ore deposits – Tuscany. Intrusive and shallow-level magmatism in post-collisional settings, Paleozoic – Antarctica, and Neogene – Tuscany. Rift/post-rift/mantle plume magmatism – Antarctica, Senegal and Sicily. Glacial volcanology and drill cores for paleo-environmental evolution – Antarctica. Sediment geochemistry and detrital zircon geochronology – northern Apennines.He is the author of over 100 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
