Strong earthquakes strike off northeastern New Zealand
18 November 2011  
 TIKITIKI, NEW ZEALAND (BNO NEWS) - Two strong earthquakes struck off the east coast of the North Island in New Zealand on early Friday evening, seismologists said. There were no reports of damage or casualties.
The first earthquake at 4.34 p.m. local time (0434 GMT) measured 5.8 on the Richter scale and was centered about 140 kilometers (87 miles) east of Tikitiki, a small town about 100 kilometers (62 miles) northeast of Gisborne. It struck about 33 kilometers (20 miles) deep, making it a shallow earthquake.

Several hours later, at 7.51 p.m. local time (0751 GMT), a stronger earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale struck the same area at a depth of 40 kilometers (25 miles), according to the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GeoNet), the country's seismological agency.
GeoNet said especially the second earthquake could be felt in some parts of the eastern region of the North Island. However, officials said there were no reports of damage or casualties from either earthquake and no tsunami alerts were issued.

New Zealand has been struck by several earthquakes during the past year. On June 13, a strong 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck near the city of Christchurch on the South Island, injuring 46 people. It followed a 6.3-magnitude earthquake on February 22 near the same city, killing 181 people and injuring more than 1,500 others.
The earthquake in February was the country's deadliest disaster since a powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck the Hawke's Bay region on February 3, 1931, killing at least 256 people and injuring thousands more.

3 earthquakes rumble near New Zealand’s volcanic White Island
April 1, 2012
– Three earthquakes, the largest measuring magnitude-4.8, have been recorded near volcanic White Island within half-an-hour each other. GNS Science reported a 4.8 quake at 4.08 pm, 110 km north of White Island, which sits off New Zealand in Bay of Plenty.  A second quake, measuring 4.7 struck at 4.24 pm, followed by a 4.1 quake at 4.30 pm. All three quakes were shallow, with the focal depth of each quake being measured at between 3 km to 6 km. The first two tremors were reportedly felt in Coromandel. White Island, New Zealand’s largest volcano last erupted in 2000. GNS Science could not immediately be reached for comment on whether the earthquakes might affect volcanic activity on the island. –Stuff.NZ

Two quakes shake New Zealand
May 06, 2012  TWO earthquakes have hit parts of New Zealand today.
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake shook people in the Wellington region and parts of the top of the South Island at 11.33am (9.33am AEST).
The tremor was centred 10 kilometres southwest of Wellington, at a depth of 30km, GeoNet says.
The second quake, also measuring 4.2 on the Richter scale, struck at 12.31pm and was felt on the west coast of the South Island.
It was centred 10km south of Ross at a depth of 15km.
Police told AAP they had received no reports of damage.

5.7 earthquake New Zealand north island
July 7, 2012  
Depth  88 km (55 miles)
34 miles SW of Taupo, New Zealand  (volcano)

A magnitude 5.7 earthquake near Turangi gave the lower North Island a shake up this afternoon.
The tremor came at 12.50pm and was felt in Palmerston North as a light rolling motion.
The quake's epicentre was centred 10km south of Turangi and was felt widely across the North Island.
It follows a magnitude 7.0 earthquake felt from Christchurch to Waikato Tuesday.
The two were only related in the general sense that they happened on the subducting plate beneath the North Island.
USGS records quakes below Richter scale magnitudes.

Strong quake rattles central North Island
7/8/12 North Islanders were again rattled by a strong earthquake yesterday, but experts say the tremor was not related to a much larger quake four days earlier.
GeoNet reported a magnitude 5.7 quake struck 10km south of Turangi at 12.50pm. The quake was 90km deep and, though police said there were no reports of damage, some residents said trinkets had been smashed.

Rumblings under Tongariro volcano NZ
July  20, 2012

Scientists have raised the Volcano Alert Level at Mt Tongariro after a series of quakes beneath the volcanic complex.
GeoNet said typically Tongariro experienced two such quakes - magnitude 2.5 or less - a year, but there had been more than 20 since July 13.
In a Volcanic Alert Bulletin issued this afternoon, it said the sequence started on July 13 and declined for a period, before restarting on July 18 and increasing in number yesterday.

‘‘These indicate unrest at Tongariro and give reason to change the Volcanic Alert Level to level 1 [from 0] and the aviation colour code to yellow [from green].’’
‘‘These earthquakes are small (magnitudes <2.5 ) and have only been well recorded by a few of the seismometers in our permanent network.
The earthquakes cluster in a zone between Emerald Crater and the Te Mari craters at 2-7km depth.

GeoNet said to better understand the significance of the quakes it was planning to put portable seismic recorders around the epicentres and conduct sampling of selected hot springs, crater lakes and fumaroles in the area.
The Te Mari craters, about  2km east of Ketetahi hot springs on the north side of Mt Tongariro, were the last craters confirmed as active on Tongariro.
In 1869 a large eruption accompanied by an earthquake at Tongariro formed the upper Te Mari Crater during an explosive eruption.
Maori descriptions talked of "bright red flame through the smoke that would burst and fall like snow", GeoNet said.

GNS Science volcanologist Brad Scott said the increased activity just means that something has upset Tongariro,
and some subterranean process is occurring.  It may or may not develop into anything further.

5.8 quake off NE off NZ North island
July  21, 2012

A 5.8 earthquake was recorded 150km east of Ruatoria this afternoon.
But despite the strength of the quake – which was felt as far away as Whakatane, Opotiki and Wairoa – locals reported no damage.
The shake -which was centered off the coastline – occurred at 4.54pm.

It comes as a series of quakes in the central North Island saw the Volcano Alert Level at Mt Tongariro being raised on Friday.
GNS Science volcanologist Brad Scott told Stuff on Friday the increased activity ‘‘just means that something has upset Tongariro, and some subterranean process is occurring’’.

‘‘It may or may not develop into anything further,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s a little bit unusual,’’ but Tongariro was ‘‘an active volcano in an active geothermal system’’

NEW ZEALAND  *  Geyser may be coming back to life on North Island after 43 years
July 28, 2012 – A long forgotten geothermal spectacle on New Zealand’s North Island could be coming back to life after more than 40 years, scientists said. In the first half of the 20th century the Waikite Geyser in the Whakarewarewa geothermal area near Rotorua was known for its spectacular hot water eruptions reaching up to 65 feet but had not produced a significant eruption since 1969, the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences said. However, in the past year scientists have increasingly noticed geothermal waters coming into the throat of the geyser, a major tourist attraction, the official Chinese news agency Xinhua reported. Geothermal features like geysers can be naturally variable and stay dormant for years, GNS geothermal scientist Ed Mroczek said in a statement. “This makes it difficult to distinguish what is part of a natural cycle and what is disruption caused by human activity,” he said. Scientists say they believe a sharp increase in the number of bores drilled in Rotorua since the 1950s by homeowners and businesses seeking cheap energy caused underground pressures to drop. But new research at Whakarewarewa suggests pressure has increased and water from deeper in the earth was being pushed toward the surface, scientists said. “We have no way of knowing if Waikite will recover to its former magnificence, but the signs we are seeing are very encouraging,” Mroczek said. –Terra Daily
