New Zealand Geoscience into the 21st Century
New Zealand is one of the world’s best natural laboratories for studying active Earth processes, providing its geoscientists with the opportunity to address some of the major challenges of the 21st century, namely the dual threats of geological hazards and climate change, and our dwindling supply of natural resources. This revised edition highlights recent advances in our understanding of the forces and processes that have created New Zealand’s spectacular landscapes and its mineral wealth, including insights into the causes and effects of the recent, destructive Canterbury earthquakes.
