Scientists have built up a completely new understanding of Mt Taranaki's eruption risk. The stratovolcano is considered to be in a "quiet period" - its last eruption occurred in 1790. Based on an analysis of nearly 230 eruptions over the last 30,000 years, researchers have put the probability of a new eruption at between one and 1.3 per cent each year. While the probability is low, the risk is significant: more than 85,000 people live within 30km of the mountain...

Many visitors and residents of Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland) have “visit every volcano” on their goal list. However, there are so many (53 volcanic centres!), many are quarried or hidden away, and it takes a lot of digging (ha!) to figure out how to check some of them off of your list. This checklist makes meeting this goal easier! In this document, you’ll find a map and corresponding list of the volcanoes, roughly grouped by location, an address or GPS coordinate for you to put into your… Goal List, Volcanoes, Auckland, Map, This Or That Questions, Awesome, Check, List Of Goals, Location Map

Questions are being asked over why tourists were allowed at White Island when its "alert level" had been elevated over recent weeks. Under the GeoNet-managed NZ Volcanic Alert Level system, ranging from zero to five, the volcano had recently been rated level 2, indicating "moderate to heightened volcanic unrest". That had been raised in response to increasing amounts of sulphur dioxide gas, along with volcanic tremors – both which can signal rising magma deep in the volcano.

A powerful volcanic eruption has rocked New Zealand’s White Island, a small uninhabited volcanic islet sticking up out of the sea in the Bay of Plenty, 50 kilometres offshore of the country’s North Island.

Buried treasure

For palaeontologists, the dark diatomite layers of Foulden Maar are like the shelves of a great library. Outside that library, bulldozers wait.

Foulden Maar is featured from 28 minutes in Ep 2.  New Zealand owes its existence to a fiery past. Volcanoes lifted islands out of the sea and generated rivers from their slopes. But the past isn’t dead. From a lava tube hidden under suburban sprawl to lost wonders of the world, alien lifeforms, and a city built above a ticking time bomb, it’s presenting a dire warning that history may soon be repeating itself.

New Zealand supereruption provides time marker for the Last Glacial Maximum in Antarctica

Multiple, independent time markers are essential to correlate sediment and ice cores from the terrestrial, marine and glacial realms. These records constrain global paleoclimate reconstructions and inform future climate change scenarios. In the Northern Hemisphere, sub-visible layers of volcanic ash (cryptotephra) are valuable time markers due to their widespread dispersal and unique geochemical fingerprints. However, cryptotephra are not as widely identified in the Southern Hemisphere…
