Earthquake hazard in the Gladstone region

conference contribution
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Michael Turnbull
The Australian mainland is generally regarded as “safe” from earthquakes because it is not near an active boundary between major tectonic plates. Despite this, it does experience substantial seismic activity and occasional major earthquake events. One of the most active areas in Queensland is the Bundaberg-Gladstone region. This information is taken into account in the design of critical infrastructure and major engineering facilities in the area.
