The New Zealand region of Canterbury has experienced over three years of frequent seismic activity, centred under or near the main city of Christchurch. Larger earthquakes and aftershocks have triggered liquefaction in certain parts of the city, depositing significant amounts of fine silt on the surface, which is a new source of dust emissions. Historically, concerns about air quality in Christchurch have been dominated by emissions from wood burning in winter for domestic heating. High… Expand
