AF8 - Alpine Fault Project
 AF8 Roadshow The Science Beneath Our Feet

 

BRINGING 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.

The AF8 Roadshow provides South Island communities, in areas most likely to be affected by an AF8 earthquake, with direct access to Alpine Fault science and hazard impact information relevant to them and their region.

On this inaugural tour we will be visiting 12 communities around the South Island, working with local schools and hosting a series of Public Science Talks. While we can’t visit everyone on this tour, we hope to be able to run a second tour in the future. Thanks to all our supporters: Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management, the 6 South Island CDEM Groups, Resilience to Nature’s ChallengesGNS ScienceQuakeCoRE and University of Otago – we couldn’t do this without you!

Last night we held our Otautau Community Response Planning meeting. We had a great turnout of community members and emergency service staff and volunteers. 
We will keep you posted on when the next meeting in Otautau is... watch this space.
