Natural Hazards

Nature can be a destructive force. Our science will prevent property damage and save lives.

We provide expert advice to inform disaster management and risk mitigation.
RiskScape, a joint venture between GNS Science and NIWA, is a tool for analysing potential economic and human impacts and losses from multiple natural hazards.

NIWA scientists scan Lake Tekapo with the aim of finding out if submarine landslides can create a tsunami hazard for the Lake Tekapo township and hydropower infrastructure.

Dr Joshu Mountjoy talks us through the technology involved with this multi-disciplinary project. Project funded by the Natural Hazards Research Platform.
