Our Changing World - Alpine Fault

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:35 pm on 4 February 2013

In the past, the Alpine Fault has produced large earthquakes every 200 to 400 years - and the last one is thought to have happened in 1717. Veronika Meduna meets GNS Science geologist Rupert Sutherland, and David Prior from the University of Otago, studying rocks uplifted from the fault to get a better idea of earthquake processes.
