ABSTRACT In 2018, Bunn and Nolden published a paper purporting to have established the true position of the Pink and White Terraces of Lake Rotomahana using forensic cartography, ‘reverse engineering’ an 1859 compass survey of Ferdinand von Hochstetter. Their results suggest that the terraces are buried partly on land, near the present-day lake shore. Sightlines constructed using an 1881 Charles Spencer photograph overlooking the White Terraces towards distant Maungaongaonga and Maungakakaramea… 

The location of the Pink and White Terraces of Lake Rotomahana, New Zealand

ABSTRACT The locations of the lost Pink and White Terraces of Lake Rotomahana, New Zealand are plotted on today’s map by using sightlines in photographs of the terraces before they vanished in the

Forensic cartography with Hochstetter’s 1859 Pink and White Terraces survey: Te Otukapuarangi and Te Tarata

ABSTRACT The 1859 field diaries of Ferdinand von Hochstetter (1829–1884) include raw data from a compass survey of Lake Rotomahana. The azimuth array is reverse engineered to identify Hochstetter’s

The destruction, by explosion connected with the eruption of Tarawera, 10th June, 1886, of the world-renowned Terraces of Rotomahana invests with a melancholy interest the subject of this paper. A

Irreversible change of the Rotomahana-Waimangu hydrothermal system (New Zealand) as a consequence of a volcanic eruption

The hydrology of the long-lived Rotomabana-Waimangu hydrothermal system of New Zealand was changed irreversibly by the brief 1886 Tarawera Rift basalt eruption. The nature of the pre-1886 surface

Rotomahana—Waimangu eruption, 1886: base surge and basalt magma

Abstract Steam explosions ejecting country rock and lake-floor sediments from Rotomahana-Waimangu accompanied eruption of basaltic scoria from Tarawera Volcanic Complex during the early morning of

The c. AD 1315 syn‐eruption and AD 1904 post‐eruption breakout floods from Lake Tarawera, Haroharo caldera, North Island, New Zealand

Abstract Breakout floods have resulted from temporary blockage of the Lake Tarawera outlet during and after late Holocene eruptions. The largest flood occurred near the end of the c. AD 1315 Kaharoa
