Geophysical Investigation Introduction for Geotechnical and Environmental Engineering Applications.

July 13 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

Presented by Eva Sutter Ground  investigations are there to make sure the ground we build on is suitable for the structure anticipated. Traditionally, this is assessed with common geotechnical tools such as machine boreholes, CPT’s, hand auger or scala testing. While these are great tools to get an accurate understanding of the ground properties at one single location per test, often an area-wide overview of geological, geotechnical and environmental property variations in the underground would be valuable to get a…

2020 Hochstetter Lecture: How Tectonic & Surface Processes Interact to Shape the Landscape

August 25 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by Phaedra Upton, Senior Scientist, Geodynamics Team Leader, GNS Science The landscape serves as a link between the solid Earth and the atmosphere. At many spatial and temporal scales, landscape morphology and topography provide a constraint on the tectonics of the Earth and processes active within it. To unravel these, we need to understand the complex relationships between surface processes, their drivers and the rocks upon which they act. I will explore recent developments in modelling tectonics and surface…

The Southern Alps of New Zealand: An Integrated Picture of an Evolving Plate Boundary

August 25 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Presented by Phaedra Upton, Senior Scientist, Geodynamics Team Leader, GNS Science The Southern Alps of New Zealand – An integrated picture of an evolving plate boundary The central South Island has long been a favourite site to study and model oblique continental collision, because the orogen is young, narrow, and a single structure, the Alpine Fault, takes up >70% of relative plate motion. The orogen is highly asymmetric and varies along strike as the nature of the two colliding plates…

21st NZGS National Symposium – Dunedin 2020

October 14 - October 18
Dunedin Centre, 1 Harrop Street
Dunedin, Otago New Zealand

Symposium theme The theme of the Symposium is inspired by the profound changes currently experienced internationally and in New Zealand: Natural disasters associated with climate change effects, are becoming increasingly frequent and severe. The learnings from the recent Canterbury and Kaikōura seismic events are shifting our thinking in New Zealand with respect to the way we perceive and address the seismic risk. Increasing urbanism and growth of population around the cities create more needs for capacity and resiliency of lifelines. The…
