Plate Tectonic hazards assessment by Dave Petley, Wilson Professor of Hazard and Risk in the Department of Geography at Durham University, UK is available available online via this site, so as usual it can be downloaded from Authorstream.
On his TheLandslideBlog, prof. Petley provides some background on the complex plate tectonic setting of New Zealand and then talk about the very surprising hazards that the Christchurch earthquake sequence has generated. Alternatively you can view his report here. It is his PowerPoint presentation of the subject from his talk at a Teachers First conference on Plate Tectonic hazards held in London for school teachers. It is great source of maps, graphics and photos for Christchurch seismic activity.
