How Hazardous Are Auckland’s Volcanoes?

Before the DEtermining VOlcanic Risk in Auckland (DEVORA) project, the flyer below neatly summarised the answer to the question posed in the blog title.

We have since learned a lot more about the Auckland Volcanic Field in the past five years of the ongoing DEVORA project, but we haven’t done it alone. Amongst others, we worked  alongside researchers at Massey University in another project called ‘Facing the Challenges of Auckland’s Volcanism.’ The head of that project, Professor Shane Cronin, will answer the question, How hazardous are Auckland’s volcanoes? on Wednesday, 22 May. Much of the information in the above flyer is still true today, with a few notable exceptions. Want to know what has changed? Shane’s talk will include those updates! It takes place at 6 pm on Massey University’s Albany campus in Auckland. You can find more details and register to attend the talk here
