Power, W.L. 2014 Tsunami hazard curves and deaggregation plots for 20km coastal sections, derived from the 2013 National Tsunami Hazard Model. Lower Hutt, N.Z.: GNS Science. GNS Science report 2013/59 544 p.

Abstract: New Zealand is vulnerable to tsunami from many sources, and some parts of the coast are more vulnerable than others. A recent review of tsunami hazard for the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM) included a first fully nationwide probabilistic calculation of the level of tsunami hazard, permitting evaluation and comparison of tsunami hazard for the whole coast. That hazard assessment forms the basis for a New Zealand National Tsunami Hazard Model (NZ-NTHM). This report contains tsunami hazard curves, and deaggregation pie charts, for 268 sections of the New Zealand coast, each of which is approximately 20km long. The results are calculated using the NZ-NTHM and use the same methodology as presented in the tsunami hazard report for MCDEM (Power, 2013). This report is intended to be used in conjunction with Power (2013).
