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