On March 5th 2012, the Argentine President Cristina F. de Kirchner announced the renaming of Jubany Station to Dr. Alejandro Carlini by the official Decree 309/ 03.05.2012.
The fateful death of Alejandro Carlini in December 2010 left his friends and colleagues of the IAA with a sad feeling of loss and absence. This led his close friends to suggest the renaming of Jubany Station. This proposal was positively accepted by all without exception as a way of perpetuating his memory in our “scientific station”. Alejandro performed his research for more than 20 years, with responsibility, enthusiasm and always with joy and optimism. He was undoubtedly an excellent scientific researcher who demonstrated incredible enthusiasm for his job, but above all he was a positive and honest person.
It is really very moving to see his name written on our Scientific Station. This is much more than reading a simple name in a map, it is a way to say deeply “thank you very much Ale, you will be in the Antarctica forever”.
