The Earthquake-Induced landscape dynamics (EILD) research programme is funded at $8.19 M for five years from 2018 to 2023 from the Endeavour Fund administered by the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment (MBIE).
The fundamental research premise is:
“Over what time scales do landscapes heal after major earthquakes?”
With an outcome of:
“Earthquake and post-earthquake landslide risk in New Zealand is effectively managed using an integrated set of predictive tools within a decision-making framework.”
GNS Science is the contracted research organization under contract C05X1709.
