During fifty five years professor José María Fúster Casas (7923-2000) works in (Central) Complutense
University of Madrid in Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. He collaborates actively in introducing new
petrological techniques as optical microscopy and developping new geochemicallaboratories. After his
Ph O in Spanish Guinea he works mainly in two geological areas: the Hercynian Iberian Belt and the
Cenozoic volcanism of Spain. From 7960 (when he became Professor) to 7990 (retiring) he developed a
great number of projects summarized in many publications (articles, geological sheets, books) organizing
international meetings (Canary 68, W Peninsular 87) and leading douzaines of Ph O projects, creating a
vast school of geologists. Last years he concentrated his efforts in Canarian Volcanism.
