McCue, K., 1996. Atlas of isoseismal maps of Australian earthquakes, part 3. Record  1995/044. Australian Geological Survey Organisation, Canberra.

Abstract

This is the third volume of the isoseismal atlas compiled by Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) and contains an additional 119 Australian isoseismal maps of earthquakes that occurred between 1841and 1990. The atlas contains at least one map in every decade since the 1840s. A loose leaf binder format was adopted so additional maps could be inserted at a later time. Isoseismal maps in volume 3 and not in the first two volumes include those for: - the largest recorded earthquake in continental Australia - offshore WA on 19 November 1906 magnitude Ms 7.2 - the largest known earthquake in Eastern Australia - north east of Tasmania on 12 May 1885 magnitude MI 6.8 - the largest earthquake on Eyre Peninsula South Australia - 16 April 1887 magnitude ML(I) 5.7. - several small to moderate but important earthquakes in or near the major urban areas of Melbourne, Adelaide and Newcastle and - three Indonesian earthquakes felt in Northern Australia. Major earthquakes in the Indonesian Banda Arc shake tall buildings in Adelaide and Perth, some of which have generated tsunamis that sweep Australia's northwest coast which is why they are included in the atlas.
