Large areas of the North Island of New Zealand are covered by thick Pleistocene pyroclastic deposits that are often prone to coastal landslides. In the Tauranga region (Fig. 1a) some landslides are associated with the Pahoia Tephras, a sequence of highly weathered sensitive rhyolitic ashes containing high amounts of the clay mineral halloysite (Moon et al., 2013, 2015).
