Remembering Kurt Kyser - Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, pioneering geochemist, and friend to E&ES

We were deeply saddened to hear about the death of Professor Kurt Kyser, Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering, Queen’s University. Kurt created and directed one of the leading geochemistry laboratories in North America, the Queen’s Facility for Isotope Research. Beyond countless seminal contributions to the field of geochemistry, his lasting legacy is the hundreds of former students and post-doctoral fellows that he mentored. Kurt was a good friend to the Earth and Environmental Science Department and he will be missed. Our thoughts are with our Queen’s colleagues and Kurt’s wife April Vuletich, a steadfast and loving presence in his life and lab.
