    Descripción

    Jorge obtuvo su título de Geólogo en 2019 por la Universidad de Atacama. Durante el pregrado, se dedicó a realizar investigaciones tefroestratigráficas en los volcanes Calbuco, Villarrica, Antuco (Chile) y Tungurahua (Ecuador). Posteriormente, inició su doctorado en la Universidad de Mánchester (Reino Unido) en 2020, gracias a la beca Dean’s Award de dicha casa de estudios. Su investigación estuvo enfocada en la interacción entre colapsos laterales de edificios volcánicos y sistemas magmáticos someros, estudiando principalmente los volcanes Antuco, Cumbre Vieja (España) y Pacaya (Guatemala). Además de continuar su enfoque en tefroestratigrafía, también se dedicó al estudio petrológico y geoquímico de productos volcánicos y remociones en masa. Luego de obtener su grado de doctor en 2023, trabajó en el Servicio Nacional de Geología y Minería (Sernageomin) como geólogo de peligros volcánicos antes de iniciar su postdoctorado en la Universidad de O’Higgins.

    Proyecto Adjudicado

    The recently awarded Fondecyt Iniciación no. 11241126 (PI Jorge Romero) aims to determine the distribution and geometry of slope instability and its controlling factors (i.e., textural and compositional characteristics of rocks, their mass structure and discontinuities, and their mechanical rock properties) at the San José and Nevados de Chillán Volcanic Complexes. Specific objectives involve encompassing the production of thematic maps to represent the factors contributing to instability (e.g., magmatic intrusions, hydrothermal alteration areas, observed landslides, etc.) and defining and characterizing lithotechnical units based on field observations. In addition, it should determine the mechanical rock properties of natural samples based on laboratory tests that represent different scenarios. Lastly, these results should be incorporated into numerical models to represent unstable areas, failure planes, and conditions for failure.

    Proyecto Adjudicado

    This project aims to determine the intensive magmatic conditions and eruption triggering during the Mondaca-forming eruption (Southern Andes), likely occurred in ~1760 CE. We will apply geothermometers, geobarometers, and Rhyolite-MELTS. These results would provide new insight into the generation of hybrid rhyolitic eruptions.
