Dried liquefaction a dusty problem in Chch
Wed, 02 Mar 2011 9:03a.m.
Strong winds in Christchurch this morning have stirred up dried liquefaction, causing dust to billow in the streets.
A 3 News camera captured a dust storm making its way down Stanmore Rd.
Military personnel working at cordons in the city are wearing breathing masks as a precaution.
Rain is expected in Canterbury today, which will put a damper on the dust, but also hamper rescue efforts.

Please stop referring to the sediment (or just "sand" if you want a simple term) as "liquefaction". This seems to be what happens when the media gets hold of a scientific term it clearly doesn't fully understand. Liquefaction is a PROCESS not a SUBSTANCE.
