Abstract The results of a time series analysis of earthquakes in the New Guinea region are presented. Two basic sets of data are used, the second being a subset of the first such that all estimated related earthquakes have been removed from the first set, leaving a residue of supposedly unrelated events. The primary results are as follows. Positive trends exist in the number of earthquakes as a function of time and there are slight indications of periodicity in the activity. The distribution of earthquakes does not approximate the Poisson distribution at all well for the raw data although this distribution is a much better model with all aftershocks and foreshocks removed from the series. The different seismic natures of the regions studied are reflected in the results of the analyses.
