In November 2016, a powerful magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Kaikōura, altering the coastal landscape and generating a devastating tsunami.

In this talk, Dr. Lorna Strachan, a prominent Aotearoa-New Zealand researcher in sedimentology, will discuss the profound impact of this earthquake on the seafloor. Utilizing cutting-edge techniques and novel seafloor data, she reveals the earthquake's effects and the resulting sedimentary deposits. These deposits offer a unique window into understanding past cataclysmic natural hazards and their implications for the future. Dr. Strachan's expertise in marine sedimentary systems and her captivating communication style promise an enlightening exploration of the interconnected relationship between land, people, and the ocean floor.
