Download the Powerpoint file of my talk “Plate Tectonics & associated hazards: Christchurch, New Zealand”

Posted by Dave Petley

On Tuesday I gave a talk at a Teachers First conference on Plate Tectonic hazards held in London.  These events are the most enjoyable presentations that I give – school teachers are wonderfully knowledgeable, engaged and interesting.  I promised the group that I’d make my talk available online via this site, so as usual it can be downloaded from Authorstream.  The talk aims to provide some background on the plate tectonic setting of New Zealand (which is complex), and then to talk about the very surprising hazards that the Christchurch earthquake sequence has generated.  You should be able to see the talk below (unless you are unlucky enough to be using something manufactured by Apple – my sympathy if so), or alternatively you can view it here.
