  • In this submission we Include three data sets collected as part of a NERC Urgency programme. Data were collected from a key field site within the Marlborough Fault Zone (MFZ), New Zealand. The Mw 7.8 Kaikoura Earthquake of 14th November 2016 was characterised by a surprising degree of spatial complexity in the surface displacement field in the Marlborough region, South Island, New Zealand. This complexity includes movement on up to 12 faults, besides a high degree of variability in apparent slip along strike of individual faults over relatively short distances. The Urgency programme included rapid collection of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), Structure from Motion (SfM) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data immediately after this event. We include data for one of our field sites for which data collection succeeded, and processing has been completed. For a summary of the key initial findings from this data set, see the following EGU 2018 Abstract and summary:
