Our most challenging earthquake: Two years after Kicura



Scientists still learn from the earthquake of Kaikōura, two years later, in the country of 7.8 kilometers, 400 atomic bombs were released.

GNS Science Earthquake Geologist Dr. Rob Langjić said that the event that took place on the 14th of November, 2016 was one of the most severe earthquakes in the world.

This was largely due to the reduction in the number of explosions in one incident.

More than 20 defects have been launched – 14 of them have been exploded enough to ground the ground.

This effect lasted more than 12 million years, as opposed to Marleno's Kekerenga defects.

In some places, the frustration was evident in the countryside, some of which dubbed Wall Waiau.

"Another lesson is that the earthquake has spread from one region to another – the earthquake began with the shortcomings in Northern Canterbury and leaps to the north and caused major disruptions in the Marlborough region," Langrig said.

"The flying disaster has created a complex network of defects in the north, blending northward with flare-ups and having different driving modes."

More specifically, this event called on scientists to consider the role of the subduction Pacific Plateau under Marlborough.

Previously, this part of the plate was completely "locked" or mounted on the Earth's crust but now it has been found that it plays a large seismic role in this part of the Southern Island.

After the event, Langgrand and his colleagues started collecting scientific information about helping the community and advising the government and advising on dams, avalanches, avalanches, tsunami and dilution.

"After collecting many data, we started publishing a number of articles in several foreign and local magazines, so long ago, they were learning."

"Now we try to understand some of the shortcomings in some of these shortcomings.

"So we have the means to go back to the shortcomings of the Pope, Kekerengu, Hundal, Homs and the Leader and to the Coast Guard to understand how these deficiencies work in the previous earthquake cycles."

A lot of work has been done on a number of scientific areas ranging from seismology to GPS based geodesy.

This summer, his team would remove the tranche through the catastrophe in the Pope, and understand how far it has shifted over the millennium.

This problem has been a great earthquake since the earthquake in 2016 – scientists have written a horizontal movement of up to 9m vertical motion and 6m horizontally.

"It's like a huge migration on earth's surface," Langgrand said.

"Understanding how long the strain collects this volume is a key to eliminating defects."

The next major earthquake was not clear when it was hit.

GeoNet recorded more than 20,000 poster attacks a year after the earthquake.

However, only a fraction of them were above 3.0 and the number of subsequent attacks decreased.

GeoNet's recent earthquake forecast is a statistically proven probability measure – a 15 percent deviation in the next three months from 6.0 to 6.9 percent, and 46 percent in just a 12-month period.

Langridge considered the potential of future earthquakes as the size of a human being is compared to the geological situation.

"When I look at it, we live in a plate that is about 4 million sterling in each century," he said.

"In the middle of the twentieth century, we talk about a lot of memories about the Awatere and Wairarapa earthquakes.

"We have seen other disadvantages of this earthquake in central New Zealand.

"In the future, for the future of the earthquake, we need to prepare ourselves as a community and a part of our macroeconomics."
