Earthquakes and liquefaction

New Zealand gets a large number of earthquakes so it’s important to be prepared for them. Earthquakes produce ground shaking which can result in damage to buildings and risk to life – and they can also cause tsunami, landslides and liquefaction.

We’re looking into the potential effects of ground shaking and liquefaction so we can plan our land use to better protect our community, and make our infrastructure more resilient.
