Hochstetter Lecture

2023 Hochstetter Lecturer

Lorna Strachan


In the last 6 years Lorna has used cores from across the Hikurangi Subduction Margin to understand links between sediment deposits, dispersal pathways, and flow triggers, including earthquakes and large storms.

Her Hochstetter lecture titled ‘Kaikōura Earthquake – Tales from the seafloor’ will share an exceptional and novel seafloor dataset that showcases the devastation wrought on the seafloor by the 2016 Kaikōura Earthquake, and the physical and biogenic processes in the minutes, hours, and years following the event.

Dates for the tour are yet to be announced but it will likely take place in the second half of 2023.

Members will be notified as soon as the schedule is confirmed and details will be publicised on this website.
