It's extremely important to know that the processing of the steel during heat treat is one of the largest successful or detrimental factors in blade steel performance. Along with blade shape and geometry, the knife blade's performance is a result of the knifemaker's understanding of and expertise in steel heat treating process. While people in this field often generalize the relative performance of steels based on anecdotal tales, amateur testing, and popular gossip, most inferior blade steel performance is based on the geometry of the blade and the processing during heat treat.
Sep 10 - Darfield earthquake damages Canterbury "Information so far suggests that the fault is pre-existing, and a patch has been reactivated during the Darfield earthquake.
Large up to km long normal faults with the same strike direction are numerous on the Chatham Rise, out to sea east of Banks Peninsula. This permanent receiver is located on Banks Peninsula. This result is consistent with a magnitude 7. What does EQC cover? Rock and scree remains unstable in the vicinity of the release site.
Huge boulders slid almost all the way to the tunnel road. Banks Peninsula transect, graphic source: NB 16, years ago was a time of dramatic global warming after an extended ice age!!!
Earthquake Reports archive Sept context spinics. New Zealand Earthquake Report Sep 8 at 7: Lyttelton volcano revival discounted "Some people have even expressed fears the extinct Lyttelton volcano might be coming back to life.
However, recent Canterbury University geology doctoral student Dr Sam Hampton said there was no evidence of volcanic activity.
The Lyttelton volcanic complex finished erupting 5. Hampton said he had discovered recent faulting at Allandale, where the road was cracked and the centreline had been offset by one to two centimetres.
Also as a result of faulting, outflow from warm springs at the northern end of Rapaki Bay had increased. There were six sulphurous springs of up to 20 degrees Celsius within about 60 metres of the beach and oriented west-east, he said. ECan acting director of investigations and monitoring, Tim Davie, said the quake could have a lasting impact, with some wells broken.
No lasting large-scale changes were expected to aquifers. Sulphurous smells were being reported around the region but it was unlikely they were all related to new springs, he said.
NZ Earthquake Report Sep 12 at 5: Oct 13 at 9: A fragment of the Australian Plate east of the more stable part of the Australian Plate is separated from it by the Marlborough and North Island fault systems. This eastern fragment rests directly on the Pacific Plate, which is subducting obliquely beneath the Australian Plate" source: If it finds a way to the surface, then the result will be a volcanic eruption; consequently many volcanoes are situated over magma chambers.
In geological terms this is extremely close to the surface, although in human terms it is considerably deep underground.
Magma rises through fractures from beneath the crust because it is less dense than the surrounding rock. When the magma cannot find a path upwards it pools into a magma chamber. It is the magma chambers more active around the North Island, under Australian Plate subductive force, that present true killer risk.
