Join us at Greymouth Regent Theatre, on Wednesday 31st May, 7pm for a public talk presented by Dr. Caroline Holden (SeismoCity) and Alice Lake-Hammond (AF8) about what the impacts of a large Alpine Fault earthquake might look like in your region.
The Science Beneath Our Feet brings Alpine Fault science and hazard impact information to South Island communities, in areas likely to be affected by an Alpine Fault earthquake.
While we can’t predict earthquakes, scientific research indicates there is a 75% probability of an Alpine Fault earthquake occurring in the next 50 years, and there is a 4 out of 5 chance that it will be a magnitude 8+ event. This is likely to have major short and long-term impacts.
All welcome | Free admission.
Hosted by the 6 South Island Emergency Management Groups and sponsored by Toka Tū Ake EQC. The AF8 Roadshow is supported by Resilience to Nature's Challenges, QuakeCoRE: NZ Centre for Earthquake Resilience, GNS Science, University of Otago University of Canterbury, and University of Auckland - Waipapa Taumata Rau.
