Grapes, R.; Downes; G.L.; Goh, A. 2003 Historical documents relating to the 1848 Marlborough earthquakes, New Zealand Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences science report 2003/34 231 p.

Abstract: The sequence of earthquakes referred to as the 1848 Marlborough earthquakes began on Monday, October 16 1848 with an estimated magnitude 7.5 earthquake at shallow depth, which caused surface faulting in the Marlborough area, South Island, New Zealand. The sequence included many moderate and small magnitude aftershocks, as well as several large aftershocks. This science report is a compilation of transcriptions of over 200 descriptive accounts and extracts relating to the effects of the 1848 Marlborough earthquakes. These extracts represent information known to Grapes et al. (1998) and used in their relocation of the mainshock from the Wairau Fault to the Awatere Fault. (auth)
