Going up or going down? - The Hutt Valley in a big earthquake.
Mr Russ Van Dissen

Fault rupture, strong ground shaking, liquefaction, sinking, uplift, and landslides are all major issues the Hutt Valley faces in large earthquakes. Recent research has identified and further characterised vulnerable zones around the Hutt Valley.

Russ Van Dissen is an earthquake specialist who has extensively studied the Wellington Fault and earthquake hazards in the Wellington regions for the past several decades, he is also a leader to the It's Our Fault project.

Come along and ask questions to initiate an informed dialogue on the issues that will affect our region by 2100.
