Earthquakes shake parts of New Zealand every day, although few are felt at the surface. This map shows all the earthquakes detected over a five-year period. Earthquakes are color-coded according to their depth, and it can be seen that clusters of quakes occur at different depths.
To access the latest data on New Zealand earthquakes use the GeoNet Quake Search catalogue.
