Not much now, just the extra 4-5 per day minor/light ones that ChCh are having,. of course pre Sept 4 2010 there was nothing from there.
As far as 5's go, 4 of the 10 I mentioned are Chch.

As it happens Puterman and I are working on breaking NZ into F_E type sub regions at the moment, so that we can quickly get the answer to such questions.

Your number BTW is 162-8, Mid Canterbury

I'm in 163-2, Cook Strait-Wellington (Wairarapa to the east and Kahurangi to the west are now seperate individual seismic regions due to their differing geology and based on historic activity)

What's your methodology?
At Southbridge, would I be 162-8 as well? Not as close to known faults as Moorf and her Springfield system, or larger ones such as the Porters Pass.
Interesting and valuable work and hit me up if you ever wish to 'collaborate' with the Academics. There are some who are thankfully open to collaborative work...cf Joan Wiffen and 'her' dinosaurs.
You guys keep the coal face glowing

Thanks for all your work.

Me, I'm a humble technician.

hey muz or puter,

Is there any consideration for regional or local geological compositional variables, and thus, the varying speed of seismic waves in your reclassification efforts?

Really good shake!!
The seismologists are saying that the volcano on Santorini is getting active. Which is a very bad thing.

I see you've been paying attention.

But if that quake is all he's got to worry about, he's probably right.

Let's not make him more grumpy, shall we?

We started by going down to half degree Latitudes and then following known Faults that defined certain regions Longitudally.
Had 38, but its too many for energy calculating, down to 14 now

You chaps have been re numbered today
- to 1625
Southbridge is just inside 1625, by 14km

Some of the names will sound familiar, but they don't necessarily follow the Province names on a map, but are based on seismicity and geology.

1601-Northland-Auckland-NE of the North island
1602-East Cape-Gisborne
1591-Waikato-Bay of Plenty
1592-Taranaki-Wanganui
1593-Hawkes Bay
1594-Wairarapa
1632-CookStrait-Wellington
1633-Kahurangi-Nelson-Wairau
1621-West Coast
1622-Marlborough-North Canterbury
1623-Fiordland
1624-SE of the South Island
1625-Mid Canterbury
1611-Solander

Puterman has to do his thing now and see if it works with his program.

heres a sneak preview KLM Google Earth file of what it looks like at this stage.
Once we get it sorted out then an explanation of how and why they are where they are comes next.
If anyone sees something obviously out of place please say

There are a few fuzzy borders such as between West Coast and Fiordland at Jackson Bay/Mt Aspiring where the Alpine Fault goes sub marine.

Interesting question, short answer is yes,and its reflected most in the region between the two islands, which USGS call Cook Strait. In fact because the Australian Plate and Pacific Plate meld and twist here its quite complicated. Studying siesmographs either side of the Strait you can see the differences in geology by the way they react to quakes to the North and South. for example quakes in the Marlborough Sounds show stronger traces on the SW North Island than they do over on the Nelson side despite the the Sounds being on the South Island, because the rock either side of the Strait is Greywacke and argillite , whereas going west from D'Urville Island its predominantly granite, Geology wise the two Islands are seperated at Nelson/Tasman Bay, not Cook Strait itself.

Nice. So are you guys noting and storing actual seismic wave speeds with these areas in some kind of database?

Why would that be an exception. I did not say that we don't have quakes, only that we probably have fewer than anywhere else. After all we did have one in Clare a couple of years ago.

Never felt it by the way. Too far away. As far as I know the area where I live has never had an earthquake in written/living history.

Hey, PuterMan!! Can I ask you to check out my thread HERE
and give me some info about this buoy off of Chile?? I am a complete noob when it comes to quakes and tsunamis!

Pretty please, with fairy dust and frog bumps on top??!!

That is not the intention at present.

The exercise is to define coherent areas of seismic activity so we can work back through the GeoNet database and attempt to build a stress profile.

"Here are two different sounds (being reported all over the world - not always followed by a significant quake). Here are two video's I found this morning regarding the quake in CO, and the following day in VA. Both were heard prior to the quakes.

Here is the one in VA:" unquote

just copy/paste, below for youtube video,,,



ANy way my point being,,
1. Apparently the "noise fad/phenom etc is NOT NEW,,
2. If earthquakes associated with the noise,,
IS there a common Fault Line,,
3. Will the next earthquake be world wide, literally.

Done. Now I am smothered in fairy dust!!

It is a data drop out by the way and not as the twerp on the link said a wave of magma

I have heard that one before. Sounds like gas to me.

It certainly is not seismic.


Will the next earthquake be world wide, literally.


Only if it is > Mag 13 !!

map of those

The 2nd one a lot closer to Invercargill.

Looking at the aftershock locations since the first one ( map here ) there is a definite SW/NE trend to this sequence, I'd say what is happening is a direct result of the Dusky Sound 7.8 of 2009, and also whats been happening in Christchurch in 2010/2011, so they may all be connected to some major changes in the seismic layout of the lower South Island (ie the Pacific Plate moving SW in this region).
