Incomplete contents:
New Zealand's volcanoes were formed many thousands of years ago, from molten rock that flowed up from the mantle through fractures in the crust. Volcanoes occur in the Auckland area, Mt Egmont, and in the Central Volcanic Region from Mt Ruapehu north-east through the Rotorua area to White Island. Scientific research is being carried out in some locations to enable advance warning of eruptions that are likely to cause loss of life and damage to property. (MSJ)
