The period was characterised by mild solar activity producing a steady string of quakes.
The Ruapehu 4.9 was significant but not an indication the volcano is about to erupt.
The Christchurch 4.0 was the biggest in the city for a long time and widely felt, even out at Rolleston.
A big quake soon at Christchurch seems very unlikely.
Quakes have eased on 16 July ahead of a moderate period on 18 July and a bigger period 20 July.
