Hazards: Eruptions, Earthquakes and Tsunamis

A big question we are trying to answer is: What happens when a volcano erupts in Auckland? To answer this we are studying the timing, size, location, and deposits of past eruptions to look for patterns, and to identify the threats to Auckland from future eruptions. We are also interested in related hazards, such as earthquakes, tsunami and fire.
