Join us at the Scenic Hotel Marlborough for a public talk by leading Alpine Fault and Hikurangi subduction zone scientist, Dr. Kate Clark (GNS Science) and hear about what the impact of an AF8 event 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 most likely to be affected by an AF8 earthquake.
While we can’t predict when earthquakes will occur, scientific research has shown that the Alpine Fault has a history of generating regular, large earthquakes. The next event is likely to occur within the lifetime of most of us, or our children and young people, for whom this is likely to have major short and long-term impacts.
Please Note: The AF8 Roadshow Public Science Talks will only go ahead at Alert level 1. At Alert level 2-4, presentations will be moved online and links will be available via the AF8 website and shared to this event page.
