Developing volcanic hazard and risk models for the Auckland volcanic field as part of the DEVORA project
Paper number: 4620
Auckland is built on the Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF), which will almost certainly erupt again. Unfortunately, the location, timing, or size of the next eruption are unknown. This project set up...
Paper number: 4618
Investigation of a 150-m-deep core drilled into Rangitoto volcano, Auckland, reveals a volcanic history extending farther back in time than previously known.
Communicating the status of volcanic activity in New Zealand, with specific application to caldera unrest
Paper number: 4617
This research focuses on recognising changes at a caldera volcano when it begins to show signs of unrest, and the communication of this information using the Volcanic Alert Level system.
Paper number: 4616
The attenuation of eruption ashfall thickness with distance is a complex response to a large number of eruptive and environmental factors. The journal paper presents a rigorous statistical method...

Anja Moebis, Massey University (EQC funded project 07/U542)A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Earth Science was accepted as a final...
Paper number: 4614
The models produced in this study give new insights into the eruption of lava domes, and the evolution of the porosity and permeability within. Understanding the processes of dome growth, bubble...

An examination of seismic characteristics before, during and after small phreatic eruptions at Mt. Ruapehu volcano, New Zealand.
Paper number: 4612
New radiometric ages determined on basalt lava flows at Kaikohe and Bay of Islands in Northland, New Zealand demonstrate that volcanoes were active as recently as about 70,000 and 40,000 years ago,...
Time-varying seismic velocity in New Zealand's volcanic regions: Comparisons between shear wave splitting and surface wave noise correlations
Paper number: 4611
Techniques used in this study provide substantial steps toward the ultimate goal of eruption early-warning based on near-real time seismic tomography.
Paper number: 4610
Borehole seismometers were installed on Mt. Ruapehu volcano to examine seismic waveforms of earthquakes and explosions recorded on these and other GeoNet and portable seismometers.
