  • The GeoNet earthquake catalogue contains the technical information of all known seismological events. The dataset includes information about the events source parameters such as hypocenter, magnitude, arrival time of seismic phases as well as velocity model used and uncertainties in the parameters. Since the 1930's, earthquakes in the catalogue have been determined by instrumental records. Prior to that, estimates were made from oral and written records. At present, a densified network of weak motion and strong motion sensors is used nationally to monitor events in regions that are affected by large seismic activity and volcanism. Around 20000 events are recorded every year in the catalogue. GeoNet observations and earthquake source parameters are currently used for rapid response, risk assessment and research purposes. Overview of access tools: This dataset is funded through DOI: Cite as: GNS Science. (1970). New Zealand Earthquake Catalogue [Data set]. GNS Science, GeoNet.
