What makes our isles so shaky? Why was Christchurch not the first of our big quakes? And why won't it be our last? This book investigates our turbulent tectonics. It tells us how earthquakes are measured and described, and how scientists predict future shakes. It details New Zealand's lesser-known quakes, quakes that have had deadly consequences, and the tremors that recently hit the lower North Island. With gripping photographs, personal accounts, and diagrams from GNS Science, Living on Shaky Ground is a must-read for all New Zealanders. Now fully updated and revised, including the 2016 magnitude 7.8 Kaikoura quake and a new coda from the author.
