Public meeting to discuss latest earthquake science findings

The Marlborough District Council is inviting residents to a public meeting that will discuss the latest earthquake research findings.

According to the council, scientists declared the 2016 Kaikoura-Hurunui earthquake sequence one of the most complex in history, with more than 20 different faults shifting.

The speakers of the event include GNS scientists Russ van Dissen, Rob Langridge and Chris Massey. They will give overviews of the science outcomes from the earthquake and will provide a closer look at the Papatea Fault. The latest development from the Alpine Fault research programme will also be presented by Dr. Caroline Orchiston of the University of Otago.

This meeting follows a popular gathering held last year during the PATA seismologists’ conference in Blenheim. It will be held on August 29 at the ASB Theatre in Blenheim.
