CD and Title photo: Precarious or delicate landform features, such as the Putangirua Pinnacles, Wairarapa, shown here, hold the potential for providing data constraining the seismic hazard models for a region. An EQC-funded pilot study is currently addressing this topic, as outlined at this 2004 Conference.
