Our home for the duration of the camp is Taranaki, North Island, New Zealand. From here, we will examine through three mapping projects the Neogene development of sedimentary basins and their fill due to the complex interaction of the Australian and Pacific plate boundary. With satellite visits to the Wellington and Wairarapa fault zones, karsted topography and the glowworm caves of Waikato, and UNESCO world heritage site Mount Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe of the Taupo volcanic zone, our understanding of the complex and diverse geology of New Zealand will grow.
