Locations of Earthquakes off Fiji

The data set give the locations of 1000 seismic events of MB > 4.0. The events occurred in a cube near Fiji since 1964.


There are two clear planes of seismic activity. One is a major plate junction; the other is the Tonga trench off New Zealand. These data constitute a subsample from a larger dataset of containing 5000 observations.


A data frame with 1000 observations on 5 variables.

[,1] lat numeric
Latitude of event [,2] long
numeric Longitude [,3]
depth numeric Depth (km)
[,4] mag numeric
Richter Magnitude [,1] lat


This is one of the Harvard PRIM-H project data sets. They in turn obtained it from Dr. John Woodhouse, Dept. of Geophysics, Harvard University.
