Canterbury’s Geology and Seismology
Dr Kate Pedley is our guest presenter for this talk on a subject that is of great interest to us who live in the Hurunui. Kate is a senior lecturer at the University of Canterbury's Department of Geological Sciences. She’ll describe how plate tectonics have shaped New Zealand, from its origins till the present, and the resulting specific geology of our region. On the subject of earthquakes, Kate will talk about the fascinating work of her team in mapping and characterising faults in the Waiau/Hanmer region, and about preliminary findings of this ongoing research.
Kate first gave this presentation in Amberley a few weeks ago, to a full house. TimeBank Hurunui is very grateful she has agreed to repeat it for us, in Hanmer this time. Don't miss out!
Time: 7 – 8.30pm, Sat 29 April. Venue: Hanmer Springs School. Contribution: 1.5 time-bank credits or donation appreciated.
