DEVORA scientists are working to understand how long it might take for people to move out of harm’s way ahead of a future eruption of the Auckland Volcanic Field. Check out this new research lead by DEVORA PhD Candidate Alec Wild to find out how long it would take !
Läuchli et al (2021) have discovered Onepoto Basin potentially contains the longest temporal lake sediment record from the Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF). Check out this paper here.
Auckland lies upon many buried fault lines, and Gasston et al. (2021) has uncovered a new fault- the Motukaraka Fault.
Check out this new open access research article published by University of Auckland and Market Economics researchers simulating post-eruption recovery pathways in Auckland. This work considers both physical consequences and socio-economic and planning implications.

The collation of whole-rock major and trace element data has led to the development of a method to correlate volcanic ash samples to their source volcanic centres.

By refining the velocity model used to locate earthquakes, Auckland can be better prepared for an eruption from the volcanic field that lies beneath the region in New Zealand’s upper North Island.
