    Scientists have successfully placed high-tech instruments along the East Coast seafloor to record the earth's rumbles at New Zealand's largest fault line

    Scientists have successfully placed high-tech instruments along the East Coast seafloor to record the earth's rumbles at New Zealand's largest fault line



    An international team set out this month to deploy sensors at points across the Hikurangi Subduction Zone.

    It's part of a wider programme to keep tabs on the country's biggest geological threat.

    Scientists hope the 30 instruments will give valuable insights into the risk of earthquakes and tsunami.
