Research by GNS Science and Victoria University of Wellington has revealed that algae critical to the marine ecosystem are sensitive to climate change.
Scientists using a combination of satellite images, GPS data and conventional survey information dating back to the 1950s have uncovered the reason for a swarm of several thousand small earthquakes between 2004 and 2011 around the coastal Bay of Plenty town of Matata.
Scientists from across the world will come to New Zealand in 2017 and 2018 to participate in a series of unprecedented investigations into the seafloor using a specially designed scientific drilling ship.
Two researchers at GNS Science have been named as finalists in the 2016 Technology Valley Awards.
GNS Science has won a total of $127,000 for three projects in the 2016 round of the government’s Unlocking Curious Minds contestable fund.
New research on the Kerepehi fault, which runs for about 80km between Matamata and north into the Firth of Thames, has revealed the fault is more complex than previously thought.
Scientists have found that slow-motion earthquakes or ‘slow-slip events’ can rupture the shallow portion of a fault that also moves in large, tsunami-generating earthquakes.
GNS Science is celebrating being the top non-university publisher of peer-reviewed science in New Zealand
Geologists working to improve the understanding of Dunedin’s potential exposure to earthquakes have opened up a fault south of the city in a bid to find out about its past rupture behaviour.
A multi-year study of the volcanic plumbing under Lake Rotomahana near Rotorua has provided scientists with the clearest view yet of the impact on the lake and its geothermal systems following the Mount Tarawera eruption in 1886.
