Basically it is Puerto Rico doing what PR does, which is have little batches of quakes every now and again.



If you go back a bit further you find the the rate of cumulative is the same as shown here, the odd man out being the BIG spike in March

True.

I'm not sure if that valley, which runs up to Lake Waikerimoana, is Glacial or Volcanic in nature, it sort of ties in with the whole East Cape tearing away eastwards from the rest of the north island theory.

I remember a swarm north of Wairoa last year, I will have a look back and see where it was in relation to this.

no more aftershocks to report.

I did a Historical events rectangular search of an area from the SE corner of Lake Waikaremoana to the Waiua Beach in the south and east to the eastern edge of Whakaki Lagoon, an area of approx. 400km2 (20kmx20km)

Map with Historical events plotted, listed by Magnitude

Same Map but listed by date

I haven't figured out how to put a Key on the maps yet, so the colour code is as follows;

I have a request for my friends here that frequent this thread. I know some of you have a geological background, or at least interest. I recently learnd about what is referred to as the MOHO, the Mohorovičić discontinuity. This is basically the space between the earths crust and mantle.

Not to stray off topic here too much (sorry), but could you please take a look at this thread I started regarding it? I am eager to get some feedback and it has a big impact on tectonics and some other stuff we have discussed here!
