The tectonic formation of New Zealand is explained before looking at the fascinating geology of the North Island, including several volcanoes (active and dormant), mud pools, geysers, lakes of brightly coloured steaming acid and earthquakes. Detail is given on the Taupo supervolcano and the 1886 Tarawera eruption that changed the face of the Rotorua area forever. The impacts of modern drilling, geothermal power generation and tourism are also explained. The talk is illustrated with a professional PowerPoint presentation that includes original photography taken while travelling and studying in New Zealand’s North Island.Views: 139 | Enquiries: 1
