Sitting across the boundary of the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates makes Canterbury an active landscape.
We map earthquake faults and where land is susceptible to liquefaction.
Not all earthquake faults are created equal – some move more often. We can show you where the earthquake faults are and what areas are more likely to shake.
What exactly is the grey sludge that oozes up through the ground during earthquake shaking? Find out what causes liquefaction and which areas are more or less susceptible.
