Abstract: The Paringa pattern was the second of three survey patterns established and surveyed across the Alpine Fault in South Westland during February - March 1972, the others being located at Haast and Whataroa. They are typically small scale patterns covering a zone 1.5 to 4.5 km astride the Alpine Fault and are located on river flats. these patterns provide a simple and precise method of monitoring secular deformation across the Alpine Fault at regular intervals. A full description of the Paringa site and pattern, together with provision coordinates and heights is contained in the site report (Blick EDS7 1973). The purpose of the survey report is to present details of the method of surveying, and an estimate of the accuracy attained. In the subsequent survey report (Otway and Wood EDS18, 1973) a comparison will also be made with the earlier results. A full discussion on the significance of the results in terms of earth deformation is not intended in this report series (auth)
