Abstract

Each year in Australia there are on average one earthquake of magnitude 5.3 or greater and about 200 of magnitude 3 or greater, excluding aftershocks. The larger ones are a threat to life and property as was so tragically demonstrated by the 1989 Newcastle earthquake. Analysis of the small ones will yield clues to the cause, location and style of future large ones. This report contains information on the 1994 earthquakes and is the fifteenth compiled by the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (and its predecessor Bureau of Mineral Resources) since 1980. Its purposes are to aid the study of earthquake risk in Australia, and to provide information on Australian and world earthquakes for scientists, engineers and the general public. The report has six main sections: Australian region earthquakes; Isoseismal maps; Network operations; Accelerograph data; Principal world earthquakes; and Monitoring of nuclear explosions. A new section on tsunamis has been added.
