Alistair, Sam and Shelley talk to Columba College during the audioconference this morning. Image: LEARNZ.
Two rivers meet below the Franz Josef Glacier/Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere. What are the names of these rivers? Image: LEARNZ.
The Franz Josef Glacier/Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere has receded dramatically in the last few years. Do you know to where the glacier used to come down? Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and Ali talk about how the Waiho River in Franz Josef will be affected by an Alpine Fault earthquake. What do you think will happen? Image: LEARNZ.
A sign warns of flood risk near the Waiho River. Can you see the difference between the level of the surrounding land compared to the river bed. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking up the main street of Franz Josef township. The Alpine Fault can be seen as a rise in the road. Image: LEARNZ.
The petrol station sits on top of the Alpine Fault. What problems might this cause? Image: LEARNZ.
Ali, Shelley and the ambassadors take time at the end of the trip to think about how to prepare for geohazards. Are you prepared? Image: LEARNZ.
Alistair, Sam and Shelley talk to Bream Bay College during the audioconference this morning. Image: LEARNZ.
Sam takes you to an old landslide scarp, probably caused by the last rupture of the Alpine Fault back in 1717. Why is the landslide no longer that noticeable? Image: LEARNZ.
Ali points out an old deer fence showing where once productive land has been damaged by a landslide dam flood. Image: LEARNZ.
This valley used to be farmland until a landslide blocked the river up valley and then this dam broke sending rock and water down into the valley. How do you think the risk of events like this can be reduced? Image: LEARNZ.
Stop banks like this can be built to try and keep the river from shifting its course. Image: LEARNZ.
Alistair shows Shelley some of the affects of landslides in the Poerua Valley. Image: LEARNZ.
Tsunami don't just happen at sea they can also happen on lakes when landslides spill into lakes and cause a large wave or surge. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and Sam talk about tsunami risk on the West Coast. What could cause a tsunami here in Ōkārito? Image: LEARNZ.
Sam points out the Porters Pass Fault trace near the pass on the way to the West Coast. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley, Sam and Alistair talk to Mercury Bay Area School during the first audioconference. Image: LEARNZ.
The Otira Viaduct was built to avoid a large landslide and provide a more reliable road link to the West Coast. Image: LEARNZ.
The old road used to go through this scree slope before the viaduct was built. Can you find out how the viaduct was designed to withstand movement caused by earthquakes? Image: LEARNZ.
Looking back towards Arthur's Pass. What other roads link the East Coast with the West Coast in the South Island? Image: LEARNZ.
Sam shows Shelley and the ambassadors where the Alpine Fault meets the Hope Fault at the Taramakau River. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking back towards the Alpine Fault scarp. Can you see where the fault is? Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley points out the Alpine Fault Scarp which can be seen as an area of land uplifted on one side of the fault. Image: LEARNZ.
Landslides are common on steep hills like this. What do you think triggered this? Image: LEARNZ.
Your Geohazards field trip began with a flight from Dunedin to Christchurch. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley caught a glimpse of where she lives in Warrington, north of Dunedin. Image: LEARNZ.
As the plane gained height you were able to see above the low cloud and enjoy spectacular views of the Southern Alps Te Tiritiri o te Moana. How were these mountains formed? Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley enjoys a smooth flight north. Image: LEARNZ.
Your plane circled over Christchurch before landing to the south. Image: LEARNZ.
You were able to sample one of Sheffield's famous pies. Image: LEARNZ.
You braved a chilly southerly wind to admire the view at Porter's Pass. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors are ready for a snowball fight at Porter's Pass. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors arrive in Arthur's Pass ready to find out more about geohazards. Image: LEARNZ.
A curious young kea welcomes you to Arthur's Pass village. Image: LEARNZ.
