Double Presentation: An earthquake-induced landslide forecasting tool, and its application in Hawke’s Bay & GNS Science Urban Geological Mapping Project – Napier-Hastings
An earthquake-induced landslide forecasting tool, and its application in Hawke’s Bay
GNS Science has developed an earthquake-induced landslide (EIL) forecasting tool, initially using the 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake landslide dataset, but subsequently working in other EIL datasets (e.g. 1929 Murchison and 1968 Inangahua). The tool has been applied in Hawke’s Bay to understand the local rockfall hazard to tsunami evacuation paths on Bluff Hill, and where the regional landslide hazards are so this can be assessed against existing and planned asset development. The talk will cover off the development of the tool, its application in Hawke’s Bay, and its current limitations.
GNS Science Urban Geological Mapping Project – Napier-Hastings
An updated geological map has been completed for the Napier-Hastings urban areas and a geomorphological map and subsurface 3D model will soon be released as part of a nationwide project that is mapping urban areas in New Zealand. 3D software and LiDAR data has enabled us to improve differentiation of Holocene units that form the Heretaunga Plains. This presentation will describe these products and the results.
