  • Abstract Radiocarbon dates from trenching of the Alpine Fault trace at Crane Creek, between the Haupiri and Ahaura Rivers, demonstrate the last earthquake rupture at this location occurred between AD 1480 and 1645, with associated local river aggradation and terrace formation. A second trench 6 km farther north at Ahaura gives the same radiocarbon age for the last event. An enlarged record of radiocarbon ages for aggradation terraces and landslides in central and north Westland has a group of… CONTINUE READING
