CQSRG Bowen Aftershock Sequence

CQSRG (pronounced CQ Surge) monitors for aftershocks of the Bowen 2016 ML5.7 earthquake. The following graph is updated regularly to show the progress of the aftershock sequence over time.

The main earthquake occurred on Thursday 2016-08-18T04:30:08.43(UTC), Thursday 18 August 2016 at 2:30 p.m. local time. The graph shows the magnitudes of the aftershock earthquakes, and the number of days they occurred after the main shock.

It should be noted that the hiatus of events prior to the main earthquake is real. The most recent event to have been catalogued (By Geoscience Australia) in the aftershock area prior to the main earthquake was an ML 3.6 on 18 November 2015. However, there may well have been other, smaller, unrecorded events in the years leading up to the main 2016 event.
