Last month 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked New Zealand has had a lasting effect of natural barriers of 15ft high wall across the landscape. In the north of Christchurch, the wall was created by the shift in the earth when massive earthquake hit southern hemisphere. After 14th November, it is first time that researchers have allowed to enter this area, when epicenter, discovered the massive Hadrian’s Wall-like rock formation which had sprung up as well as roads and fencing displaying clearly how sections of the earth have shifted out of line.

These incredible images are shared by Dr Pedley, clearly showing that, striking hobbit-like idyllic green New Zealand countryside torn apart by the earthquake. So far, all roads beyond this point are closed and only passable by military vehicles. The scientist’s progress and took these incredible pictures which show the earth itself has been warped and twisted by the effects of the gigantic earthquake. They were trying to find fault ruptures in the region around the original epicenter, not as flashy as the ruptures north of “Kaikoura” but an intricate 3km-wide zone of plentiful ruptures and associated structures, but it very rapidly got messy for infrastructure to the northeast.

Therefore, the amount of associated rock-fall, landslides and slumps were unbelievable. Thus, roads, fields and the sides of whole hills have also been disturbed with also further subtle lines showing just in the outline of disturbed grass and crops in the lush green New Zealand countryside. The force of the earth quake was so robust, even one landslide even created a dam on the Leader River.

The total zone of faulting is about two miles across. Most of the faulting the team measured occurred on fault traces that had not been previously mapped
