Presented by Brad Scott.
Volcano Surveillance Coordinator at GNS Science.

Scott will give a talk entitled ‘How we monitor our volcanoes’. Brad works with the GeoNet team to monitor the activity of New Zealand's active volcanoes. Many techniques are used, including seismic, deformation, gas and water chemistry.

The talk will explain how the GeoNet project (our national geological hazards monitoring programme) collects its data from the volcanoes. He will cover the techniques used at the volcanoes in the Tongariro National Park, the Rotorua-Taupo area, Taranaki, Auckland, White Island and Raoul Island.

The talk will also provide guidance as to how people can keep an eye on their own local scene - geologically speaking.

GeoNet is a collaborative project between the Earthquake Commission, GNS Science, and the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology.
