Part of White Terraces Found

Date: 1/8/2011

Scientists who found part of the famed Pink Terraces in Lake Rotomahana (New Zealand) also found remnants of the White Terraces. The side scan sonar data contained images of hard, crescent-shaped structures in a similar location to where the White Terraces were before Mt Tarawera erupted in 1886. The structures are at 60m depth and the rounded terrace edges are standing up from the lake floor by about a metre in some places.
