Location: Goodman Lecture Theatre, Hackney Road
University of Adelaide geology researcher Associate Professor Vic Gostin will give a free public lecture to the Royal Geographical Society of South Australia.
The title of the lecture is "From continental drift to plate tectonics, life on a very active planet".
Associate Professor Gostin has had a long and distinguished career as a geologist and has published widely. In 1988/89 he received the special honour of having an asteroid named after him for his groundbreaking study of the debris from the Lake Acraman impact site in the Gawler Ranges.
His lecture will discuss how our understanding of the continental movement has improved with the use of modern GPS and radar ranging.
Associate Professor Gostin will also trace the consequences of enormous volcanic events in the past.
