Emeritus Professor Vince Neall
Moves are afoot to create a Manawatu Geopark centred upon Te Apiti, the Manawatu Gorge and its surrounding environs. There is a wealth of geological and geomorphological opportunities for designated geosites which help explain the evolution of the region, both from a neotectonic but also past climate history standpoint. In this talk I will explain the basis for a number of these sites and what you can see and understand about the geological history above a convergent plate boundary.
