Rotorua Lakes Map collection

Map

This map collection contains two map posters that provide a detailed view of the lake floor bathymetry of Lake Rotoiti at a scale of 1:17,500 and of Lake Rotomahana at a scale of 1:11,000.

Overview

Both maps contain smaller maps and seismic cross sections. Smaller maps detailing free air gravity, magnetic and heatflow data, and locations where plumes of gas bubbles have been recorded. They also show the likely locations of the remnants of the Pink Terraces and the White Terraces, with the latter largely destroyed during the 1886 eruption of Mount Tarawera.
