Wellington Region Liquefaction Potential

Region: Aotearoa - New Zealand

Description: The occurrence of earthquakes in the Wellington Region is inevitable due to its location at the boundary of two crustal plates. Earthquakes have the potential to cause significant adverse effects within the Region, including loss of life, injury, and social and economic disruption. This data shows the levels of liquefaction risk for the region based on pre-existing datasets. Liquefaction risk is related to the type of soils present. This data shows the locations of soils that have a siginificnt risk of liquefaction occuring and the level of that risk for the entire region. This data is based on exisitng geological maps published by GNS and similar investigations.
