A U-Pb zircon geochronology for the Rotokawa geothermal system, central Taupō Volcanic Zone (TVZ), New Zealand, provides new constraints on the chronostratigraphy and volcanic and structural evolution of this area and the broader TVZ. The 3-km-thick volcanic sequence at Rotokawa is mainly composed of rhyolitic ignimbrites linked to large caldera-forming events from sources outside the field area, but locally sourced andesite and rhyolite lavas and intrusions are also present.
