A unique convergence of ecological, geological and cultural values in South Auckland showcases the need to integrate multiple elements in volcanic site evaluations.
The Auckland Volcanic Field Contingency Plan details the management of an eruption in the field.
Volcanic crisis simulation and role-play are valuable tools in communicating hazard assessment, learning monitoring and emergency management skills, as well as developing teamwork and decision-making strengths.
From key points to dynamic diagrams and succinct summaries, the DEVORA Geology Field Note Series delves into various volcano-related issues in an easy-to-read one-page “note”.
A multi-hazard scenario of an Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF) eruption reveals the potential impact on transport infrastructure and network users.
Volcanic ash fall (tephra) can damage or even destroy buildings and infrastructure and threaten health and well-being, along with having a massive impact on both the local and national economy.
Several eruption scenarios set the scene for developing better volcanic risk mitigation and asset management practices.
Observations and numerical models can help explore the depositional mechanisms, macroscale current dynamics, and potential impact on the city of dilute pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) in the Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF).
