In Memoriam

With great consternation I heard about the sudden and tragic death of Dr. Lorenz Keim. I meet him on various field trips and respected him as enthusiastic geologist and able lecturer, dedicated to the divulgation of the newest research dealing with the geology of the Dolomites. He was involved in the preparation of the most recent geological maps of this region and made important contributions for our modern understanding of the diagenesis and geometry of the fossil reefs in the Dolomites and the surrounding stratigraphic framework.

  1. I share your consternation.
    I meet Lorenz many times in the framework of realization of the geological map of Italy and I remember his passion and generosity.
    He will be missed by all who knew him.
