Abstract: This report presents the results of a study on community understanding and awareness of natural hazard risk undertaken in Franz Josef Glacier in March 2001. This study was a follow-up to a previous study undertaken in February 1999, and reported in Gough et al. (1999). The original study was untaken as part of an Institute for Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS) Non Specific Output Funded (NSOF) project entitled 'Developing Risk Analysis for Improving Risk Management'. The purpose of the GNS NSOF project was to examine a number of different risk analysis approaches that might be used for natural hazard risk management. The 1999 report examined the use of qualitative analysis of community perspectives as a means of establishing preferences for management options. (auth)
