About the course
The 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes caused liquefaction throughout the area.
This caused lateral spreading, settlement, foundation failures, subsidence near waterways and large volumes of sediment ejecta.
Around half the total economic loss from the earthquakes could be attributed to the liquefaction and rockslides.
This course provides an overview of what topics are in Module 3 and the key changes from the original NZGS Module 1.
