Hazard monitoring

24/7 monitoring of natural hazards and rapid response to events.

Natural hazard monitoring is a crucial step in achieving a state of readiness.

  • When, why and how a hazard may occur?
  • What are the warning signs?
  • How do we minimise risk?

Our seismologists, geodesists, volcanologists, earthquake geologists and landslide scientists deliver world-leading hazard monitoring services, and rapid-response teams.

Our hazard monitoring is underpinned by the GeoNet Project, 24/7 monitoring of New Zealand’s earthquakes, volcanoes, land deformation and stability, geothermal activity and tsunami.
