Maunder, D.E. (ed.) 2000 New Zealand seismological report 1998. Lower Hutt: Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences. Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences science report 2000/29; Seismological Observatory Bulletin E-181 174 p.
Abstract: The form of this report follows lines established in recent years. The main list of regional shocks contains only earthquakes of magnitude 3.5 or greater located within 10 degrees of Wellington, and smaller earthquakes known to have been felt in New Zealand. Many other earthquakes have however been assigned serial numbers, so the shocks listed are often not consecutive. Phase data are not published here, but are sent to the International Seismological Centre, and appear in their bulletins, which constitute the only medium now in use for routine reporting of arrival time observations made in New Zealand. The lists of origin coordinates and magnitudes include sufficient supplementary information for assessment of the quality of the data on which they are based. (auth)
