John Watt looks at the biggest titans of Mother Nature including tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanoes that have shaped the foundation of New Zealand. Through a series of provocative interviews, unique archival footage, and incredible field testing, viewers get a picture of how science is attempting to explain these phenomena. A part of “Ever Wondered? (Series 1)” (22 minutes)

Segments in this video include:
  • Australian Plate Meets the Pacific Plate – Dr. John Watts meets with Dr. Hamish Campbell in order to learn about New Zealand’s seismic activity. The biggest earthquakes occur at subduction interfaces. The last major earthquake in Wellington was in 1855. Images of a 1931 earthquake that devastated Hastings and Napier are shown.
  • Earthquake Seismology – Dr. John Townsend gives an explanation of how slow earthquakes work, also known as slow slips. Studying how slow slips occur may be the key to being able to predict when the sudden violent earthquakes occur. Dr. John Watt uses a chocolate bar to show ductile and brittle movement. Dr. Townsend uses GPS data to find slow slips.
  • Tsunami Danger – Dr. Graham Leonard is attempting to ensure that New Zealanders don’t suffer the effects of a tsunami. He uses a model to demonstrate water movement in a tsunami.
