New Zealand Supersite

One of the objectives of this event Supersite is to obtain ground deformation from InSAR data. The New Zealand Volcanoes (NZVolc) supersite covers the volcanoes of Ruapehu (175.615, -39.219), Ngauruhoe (175.63, -39.219), Tongariro (175.659, -39.126) and White Island (177.18,- 37.52). In addition, the region covering Taupo caldera is also required and is bounded by -38.5 to -39 South and 175.6 to 176.3 East (Figure 2). Occasional requests for data may be considered should any of the less active volcanic centres in the North Island experience unrest. These volcanoes include the Auckland Volcanic Field, Taranaki, the Okataina caldera and Tarawera.
