Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand with 1.6 million residents. This major metropolitan region is situated upon the Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF), posing a considerable risk to the city’s population and essential services. On 17 December 2018, a workshop jointly run by DEVORA (Determining Volcanic Risk in Auckland) and Auckland Emergency Management (AEM) was held to discuss evacuation decision-support options in the event of a volcanic crisis in Auckland. The workshop brought together...

Tangaroa voyage TAN2006 took place from 26 June – 17 July 2020, with an unscheduled port call in Wellington from 29 June – 1 July due to equipment problems. The voyage objectives focused on geophysical studies of seafloor pockmarks on the Chatham Rise, as well as possible pockmarks and contourite deposits in the Bounty Trough. We acquired ~800 km of 2D seismic data, ~500 km of which were in a dense grid designed for high-resolution...

Suitability of quantitative volcanic hazard and risk assessment methods and tools for crisis management in Auckland, New Zealand

A. J. Wild, Jan M. Lindsay, M. S. Bebbington, M.A. Clive & T. M. Wilson
In the lead up to the next Auckland Volcanic Field (AVF) eruption, it is likely decision-makers will need to determine when and where to call an evacuation. Over the past two decades there has been a growing body of research aimed at exploring the use of quantitative hazard and risk models to support decision-makers. There is a wide range of existing quantitative approaches for assessing risk and its components: hazard, exposure and vulnerability. A detailed...

This report documents the voyage objectives, outcomes and preliminary results of the GNS-Science-led R/V Tangaroa voyage TAN2205, which took place from 15 March to 7 April 2022 in the eastern Tasman Sea (Deepwater Taranaki Basin). The over-arching aim of the voyage was to acquire new information to help progress our understanding of the link between submarine landslides and tsunami in the Tasman Sea. The voyage is part of the 2021 Ministry of Business, Innovation &...

CSEM, TOPAS and Echo Sounder survey of the Southern Hikurangi Margin 1st – 13th November: RV Tangaroa TAN2012 voyage report

The TAN2012 voyage took place between the 1st and 13th of November 2020 aboard RV Tangaroa. Controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) data, multibeam bathymetry, single beam echo sounder, water column and TOPAS sub-bottom profile data were collected at the southern end of the Hikurangi subduction margin. CSEM profiles were collected along existing regional 2D reflection seismic lines to characterise and quantify gas and gas hydrate accumulations in the sub-seafloor. Multibeam bathymetry and water column data, as...
