The Waipaoa River Floods

Well, the timing of our cruise was perfect.  The cruise just ended, and the river just went into flood. The Waipaoa River reached an 8.4 m stage (see figures; these provisional data are from http://www.gdc.govt.nz/environmental-monitoring/

According to the following article http://www.gdc.govt.nz/assets/Files/Conservation/SER-LandSoilBiodiversity.pdf, this was a 10-year-flood event. 


This is exciting because we have three tripods sitting out on the shelf and ready to see some mud. Hopefully, they are happily collecting data at the sites where we left them.
