Dear PAIS community
The Antarctic geoscience community recently lost a member of our family. It is with great sadness that we publish this obituary for our friend and colleague Franco Maria Talarico.
Franco died on December 15th 2020 after a life spent working in Antarctica with passion and dedication. Franco contributed significantly to PAIS scientific discoveries and was very active also in education and outreach. We will miss his smile and vision.
We want to help preserve and honor Franco’s memory by collecting photos, stories, and anecdotes from his colleagues. Denise Kulhanek generously offered to compile these into a photo album that we will print for his family, and these memories will also be used as a memorial when we can all meet together again as a community.
