This collection includes original seismograms recorded by the New Zealand Seismograph Network dating from the 1900s to 2005, including complete collections from several Pacific Island stations, and some stations in Antarctica. This is one of several resources in the Nationally Significant Earthquake Information Database (EID).
Nationally Significant Databases are those datasets and collections registered as important for New Zealand, and as such are supported by long-term government funding.
These maps show the location of the stations and the durations of records. The records are mostly paper seismograms with some film. We have started scanning some of the material. Data can be made available on request.
