Victor Andrew Gostin

Honorary Visiting Research Fellow, University of Adelaide

Dr. Gostin has been researching, supervising and teaching geology and sedimentology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels since 1970. His scientific interests include the origins and evolution of the solar system and of life, meteorite impacts, earth history, environmental geoscience, and the effects of natural phenomena on the course of human history. Victor is keen to popularise earth and planetary sciences to the community through lectures and radio. His identification of an extensive ejecta blanket derived from Australia's largest meteorite impact [honoured by asteroid 3640 GOSTIN] has widened his attention to planetary geology and to current climatic issues.
