GNS Science are reporting that the Crater Lake is currently in a heating phase which started in late 2014 when the lake was 15°C, reaching a peak of over 40°C in late January - early February 2015.

The temperature declined to about 31°C in mid March and is now at 37-39°C. They have not observed any other changes at the Crater Lake. 

Over the last 2-3 weeks they have been recording intermittent moderate to strong levels of volcanic tremor at Mt Ruapehu, which has been some of the strongest they have seen in the last 8 years.

The signals are similar to those in 2006 and 2007 but weaker than those recorded in 1994/1995.

Signing of Terms of Negotiation & Site VisitsFriday 27 February 2015

On Friday 27th February, the Minister of Treaty Negotiations, Hon Chris Finlayson and Ngāti Rangi Trust Chair, Kemp Dryden, signed the Terms of Negotiation in respect of Ngāti Rangi’s distinctive Treaty negotiations. This signals the formal commencement of negotiations with the Crown towards an Agreement in Principle in respect of Ngāti Rangi’s historical Treaty of Waitangi claims.    


Following the signing of the Terms, the Minister & Crown officials were taken to significant sites within the Ngāti Rangi rohe, including Koro Ruapehu, Karioi Forest and Moāwhango Dam. These visits allowed the Minister to gain a greater appreciation of Ngāti Rangi's story and settlement aspirations. 


Chair, Kemp Dryden stated that "It was a very positive day for Ngāti Rangi. From the signing of the Terms, through to the visit to our special places, the Minister and Crown officials were left with a very strong impression of Ngāti Rangi, both in terms of our values and also in terms of our settlement aspirations. In the months ahead, Ngāti Rangi's negotiators aim to negotiate the next milestone, an Agreement in Principle, which fairly reflects both our history & vision for the future."
