Earthquake Case study: Alpine Fault Earthquake Impacts on the South and Lower North Islands
April 2017 –Sept 2018
Our initial case study focuses around an Alpine Fault earthquake rupture scenario in order to contextualise each aspect of the earthquake resilience ‘pipeline’, the expertise for which resides within the FPs themselves. This project leverages off the “Project AF8” programme funded by the National Resilience Fund and seeks to apply the latest research understanding for impacts of Alpine Fault earthquakes, and through end-user engagement, use the results of this project toward tangible improvements in Aotearoa New Zealand earthquake resilience. Notably, this case-study project will learn from the Kaikōura Earthquake to better understand the impacts of future Alpine Fault Earthquakes.
