|Abstract||As part of a strategy that aims at achieving an acceptable level of risk from
hazards in the Region, the Regional Council has undertaken a scoping
study into tsunami hazards. In 1990 the Regional Council commissioned
research into tsunami hazards, generating a numerical model for tsunami
scenarios in Wellington Harbour. This scoping study builds on and
updates the previous research and examines the entire coastline in more
detail. The objectives of the scoping study were to:
a) Define and assess the effects of tsunami hazards likely to occur in the
b) Identify and define the risk tsunamis pose to the Wellington Region;
c) Identify mitigation measures that can be undertaken, based on currently
known information, to reduce the risks from tsunami to the Region;
d) Assess the uncertainties in the available information;
e) Identify gaps in the current knowledge and prioritise studies to fill those
f) Identify key stakeholders in the Wellington Region with an interest in
tsunami hazard assessment.
The report includes tables, figures and a bibliography. 132 pp.
GeoEnvironmental Consultants were commissioned by the Regional
Council to undertake the scoping study.
