Professor John Townend
"Earthquake physics: new knowledge from recent New Zealand events"
Professor John Townend's research focusses on earthquake mechanics, fault zone structure and hydrology, and the detection and analysis of small earthquakes. Most of his current work is concentrated on the Alpine Fault, the Hikurangi Subduction Zone, and geothermal systems in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, but he has previously worked on projects in California, Japan, and Iceland. He is a former president of the New Zealand Geophysical Society and a current board member of the Seismological Society of America.
