The Auckland Volcanic Field is made up of about 53 individual centres. Within the DEVORA programme we are gathering data to explain how, why, how often and how fast magma moves to the surface in the Auckland Volcanic Field. We are also studying the deposits of past eruptions to learn more about how and when our volcanoes formed.
