Ash Impact Posters

Volcanic ash is the most widespread hazard of explosive volcanic eruptions and the most likely to affect towns, cities and farmland in the North Island of New Zealand. Ash fall can cause considerable disruption, which in some cases continue long after the volcanic eruption is over. Below are a series of posters, commissioned by the Auckland Lifelines Group (ALG), providing concise best practice information for critical infrastructure managers to effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from ash-producing volcanic eruptions. Content is based on the latest international research and informed by observations from around the world. We are proud that New Zealand is at the forefront of volcanic ash impacts research, focussing in particular on impacts on critical infrastructure such as water and electricity supplies and transport networks, and thank the ALG for making these posters available.
