I wonder what his theory is based on?
the continental shelf? matches with his lines, but that doesn't necessarily mean its a Fault there
recent quakes there in July?, that one P'man posted has been deleted from the database since, which raises the question of reliability of the data
from Geonet. All quake entries are preliminary until analyzed by a geologist, and often the automatic SeisComp3 system developed by Geofon and
introduced by Geonet in Sept 2012 has proven to be erroneous.
The quakes in that region mentioned can be seen on my map of July 2013
If one checks the other years (2012 and 2009) from the drop down tabs at the top of the page, one can see ....................... not much
except one quake on 28/5/2012,

also deleted (just did a new search of the database now)
NIWA is mentioned in the story, well that is the end of the investigation right here, they are a closed shop, you can't even get into the NZ offshore
faults database without signing a secrecy document (Chris Crowe of Christchurch Live told me)
Phil Ford may be right, but how can anyone possibly comment when the facts are not presented.
