We have a reasonably long day ahead of us, but it promises to be both interesting and relaxing. We will be examining a range of distal and proximal pyroclastic deposits including airfall and flow (ignimbrite) units derived from the Mangakino and Okataina Volcanic Centres, Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ), tephric loess deposits, and buried paleosols on tephra beds- in other words, something for everyone attending our three-discipline conference. As well, we shall see a variety of volcanic landforms both on our journey from Hamilton and in the Rotorua region itself. We finish the day with a 'Caldera Dinner' overlooking Rotorua and Haroharo calderas, and Mt Tarawera, from the top of Ngongataha rhyolite dome.
