New Zealand ShakeOut 2018 Observation Evaluation Report: a summary of high-level findings

Emily Lambie, Julia S Becker & Maureen A Coomer
The New Zealand ShakeOut 2018, organised by the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM), was the latest national earthquake drill to be held in New Zealand. Over 870,000 participants registered to participate in the drill via the ShakeOut website. The drill was held on 18 October 2018 at 9:30 a.m., and participants were encouraged to practice ‘Drop, Cover and Hold’ in response to a potential earthquake. In addition to the drill, other activities...

Quicker and safer tsunami evacuations through agent-based modelling

William L Power, K Boersen, Kristie-Lee Thomas, L Tilley, Emma E Hudson-Doyle, Lucy C Kaiser, Biljana Lukovic, David W Heron, T M Wilson, Graham S Leonard & David M Johnston
All of Aotearoa New Zealand’s coastline is at risk of tsunami from local sources, those that reach the coast in less than one hour. Some areas in New Zealand are particularly vulnerable to tsunami, given the long distances to safety, and if a tsunami were to occur there may be large numbers of casualties. The primary means for saving lives is to educate the public to immediately self-evacuate tsunami-prone areas if they feel a long...

New Zealand ShakeOut 2018: tabulated results of a school survey

E. S. Lambie, Julia S. Becker & Maureen A. Coomer
The New Zealand-wide ShakeOut earthquake drills are part of the National CDEM (Civil Defence Emergency Management) Exercise Programme organised and promoted by the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management (MCDEM). Individuals and groups are encouraged to sign up to ShakeOut online at (www.shakeout.govt.nz) and, on a selected date, practice appropriate actions in response to a potential earthquake (i.e., ‘Drop, Cover and Hold’). Participants are also encouraged to undertake other emergency response planning and exercising,...

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...

Ash leachate characteristics of the 27 April 2016 and 13 September 2016 eruptions of Whakaari/White Island volcano

Carol Stewart, Geoff N. Kilgour & Michael D. Rosenberg
Volcanic ash samples from the 27 April 2016 and 13 September 2016 eruptions of Whakaari / White Island volcano were collected on-island within 24 hours of each eruption. Water-extractable concentrations of a range of elements were determined in these samples, following the International Volcanic Health Hazard Network (IVHHN) protocol. These results are reported here to add to the broader geochemical data series for Whakaari / White Island and because of interest in the 2016 ash...
