August update

In recognition of having submitted the first of our papers from the project, and a lot of hard work thus far, our group and supporters met for a special lunch last Friday (13 Aug).

Triaxial tests in the lab, led by Danche, got underway earlier this week – though these are now on hold with the latest lockdown! There is plenty to do from home, however. The team are working on abstracts for the forthcoming Geoscience Society of NZ annual conference at Massey University (Palmerston North) later this year, and on the first report to our Marsden funders. As we head into spring, we are also looking forward to resuming our fieldwork.
