ON LINE – GNS Urban mapping in South Auckland: Geology and Geomorphology

Date / Time
Mar 17, 2021 @ 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Australian Geomechanics Society

Presented by Kyle Bland and Dougal Townsend

Due to Covid restrictions this event will now be on line  https://www.engineeringnz.org/courses-events/event/gns-urban-mapping-in-south-auckland/

This talk outlines the GNS Urban Mapping project that is near completion for the South Auckland area. Digital
geological and geomorphological maps have been produced, which emphasise the geological and landscape
evolution of this area. Kyle and Dougal are geologists working at GNS Science, based in Lower Hutt. They have
both worked on large geological mapping projects such as QMAP. Kyle’s research interests lie in
paleogeographic reconstructions of New Zealand’s past landscapes and environments, and educational
outreach targeting the general public — particularly school children and their teachers, and iwi. Dougal has
worked with the SLIDE project in Wellington, leading a team mapping the geomorphology of the city. Recently
he also completed a new geological map of the Tongariro National Park and is currently working on a new map
of the Auckland Volcanic Field.
