Thursday, 17 May 2018

Centre Deputy Director Dr Caroline Orchiston recently appeared on Stuff News through her involvement with Project Alpine Fault Magnitude 8 (AF8)

The group warned there's compelling geological evidence to show it produces a significant earthquake of magnitude eight or greater every 300 years on average.
