French geologist who served the Chilean government in the 19th century, known in Spanish as Pedro José Amadeo Pissis. Pissis worked in Brazil and Bolivia before he arrived to Chile. He left Bolivia due to political problems and was preparing his departure to France in Valparaíso when Chilean minister Manuel Camilo Vial contacted him to do a geologic and mineralogic description of the Republic of Chile. Monte Pissis, the third highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere and second highest volcano in the world is named after him. He died on 21 January 1889 in Santiago de Chile, aged 76.
