The University of Canterbury (UC) is this afternoon sending an initial response group to observe the latest volcanic eruption on Tongariro.
UC response team co-ordinator Dr Sam Hampton said they would also map eruption deposits, ash collection and analysis, and observe ash impacts and clean-up.
"The Canterbury University Group for Ash Research (Cougar) will be on the ground on Thursday morning and working closely with GNS Science and Massey University," Dr Hampton said.
