Training in crisis communication and volcanic eruption forecasting: Design and evaluation of an authentic role-play simulation
(University of Canterbury. Geological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Vice-Chancellors Office, 2015)
We present an interactive, immersive, authentic role-play simulation designed to teach tertiary geoscience students in New Zealand to forecast and mitigate a volcanic crisis. Half of the participating group (i.e., the ...
Towards disaster resilience: A scenario-based approach to co-producing and integrating hazard and risk knowledge
(University of Canterbury. GeographyUniversity of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2015)
Quantitative risk assessment and risk management processes are critically examined in the context of their applicability to the statistically infrequent and sometimes unforeseen events that trigger major disasters. While ...
Evaluation of CryoSat-2 derived sea-ice freeboard over fast ice in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica
(University of Canterbury. Gateway Antarctica, 2015)
Using in situ data from 2011 and 2013, we evaluate the ability of CryoSat-2 (CS-2) to retrieve sea-ice freeboard over fast ice in McMurdo Sound. This provides the first systematic validation of CS-2 in the coastal Antarctic ...
Climbing the crustal ladder: Magma storage-depth evolution during a volcanic flare-up
© 2018 The Authors, some rights reserved. Very large eruptions (>50 km3) and supereruptions (>450 km3) reveal Earth's capacity to produce and store enormous quantities (>1000 km3) of crystal-poor, eruptible magma in the ...
Personalising the viewshed: Visibility analysis from the humanperspective
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2015)
Viewshed analysis remains one of the most popular GIS tools for assessing visibility, despite the recognition of several limitations when quantifying visibility from a human perspective. The visual significance of terrain ...
Advent of continents: A new hypothesis
© The Author(s) 2016. The straightforward but unexpected relationship presented here relates crustal thickness to magma type in the Izu-Ogasawara (Bonin) and Aleutian oceanic arcs. Volcanoes along the southern segment of ...
Towards more Resilient Infrastructure Systems: Methods and Tools.
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2014)
Interdependence and dynamics of essential services in an extensive risk context: a case study in Montserrat, West Indies
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2015)
The essential services that support urban living are complex and interdependent, and their disruption in disasters directly affects society. Yet there are few empirical studies to inform our understanding of the ...
Review of the global models used within phase 1 of the Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative (CCMI)
We present an overview of state-of-the-art chemistry–climate and chemistry transport models that are used within phase 1 of the Chemistry–Climate Model Initiative (CCMI-1). The CCMI aims to conduct a detailed evaluation ...
Variability of Acoustically Evidenced Methane Bubble Emissions Offshore Western Svalbard
(American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2019)
Large reservoirs of methane present in Arctic marine sediments are susceptible to rapid warming, promoting increasing methane emissions. Gas bubbles in the water-column can be detected and flow-rates can be quantified ...
