A unique convergence of ecological, geological and cultural values in South Auckland showcases the need to integrate multiple elements in volcanic site evaluations.
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).

The scale of eruption in the Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF) appears to be controlled by the dynamics of the soft area (asthenosphere) of the upper mantle.
The orientation of horizontal components of borehole seismometers is unknown on installation.
However, it is crucial to any multicomponent seismic analysis.
The rate of activity in the Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF) in the upper North Island of New Zealand has been increasing for the past 60,000 years, suggesting that the field is still in its infancy.
