    Island are underway including analysis of data collected in shallow boreholes drilled into the fault in early 2011 Plans are now underway for deeper boreholes targeting the fault at 1 5 km depth and students interested in working on the microstructural seismological or pressure temperature monitoring data from the boreholes are encouraged to contact us Volcano seismology We are continuing to develop techniques to test whether time varying seismic properties such as isotropic velocity anisotropy and attenuation can be used to determine changes in the magmatic system underneath volcanoes Volcanoes in New Zealand and overseas are being targetted in particular the recent eruption of Tongariro Volcano Structural studies using seismic noise the use of seismic noise as a source of energy with which to study earth structure is a new technique that has been rapidly evolving in the last decade This PhD will use several of the datasets discussed above to further develop the techniques and to determine the velocity structure in selected regions of New Zealand Seismological studies of geothermal areas We are developing projects focussed on seismicity and structure around geothermal fields in New Zealand Possible PhD projects include a Microearthquake characterization of geothermal fields in New Zealand
