A group of international scientists are heading ‘Down Under’ in 2018 to study slow-slip earthquakes on the seafloor on the East Coast of the North Island. The team will be travelling in the research ship JOIDES Resolution and will drill three holes up to 1.5 kilometres deep into the seafloor off the Gisborne coast. They will spend up to two months extracting drill cores for analysis and inserting instruments that will allow them to continue to monitor the Hikurangi subduction zone, which runs along the east coast of the North Island.
