Cheer up boaties – it appears scientists consider a marine eruption more likely than an eruption on land (Auckland's narrow isthmus already has 53 volcanic outlets). This painting depicts an imaginary slice of marine geology in Hauraki Gulf, where the volcanic cone of Rangitoto Island oversees all activity in the harbor.
Fossils painted from sketches made in the paleo lab work for Geology 101.
