Directions and Distances :Directions and Distances from Geographical Reference in Close Proximity Which can be effected by Location Uncertainty

a) 89km (55mi) E of Nago, Japan

b) 102km (63mi) ENE of Gushikawa, Japan

c) 102km (63mi) ENE of Haebaru, Japan

106km (66mi) E of Ishikawa, Japan

1235km (767mi) S of Seoul, South Korea

Location Uncertainty: 
5.6 Mwb
± 0.04
26.547°N, 128.878°E
± 12.4 km
8.5 km
± 5.2 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
67.9 km (0.61°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.96 sec

Azimuthal Gap4

1Number of phase Applied: 
In determining location of hypocenter, applied number of observations on P waves and S waves. The greater the more accurate prediction of EQ.

2Minimum Distance:
 Horizontal distance of nearest Station measured in Km from epicenter. The smaller the more accuracy in prediction of depth of EQ.

3Travel Time Residual:
 A way of measurement of fit of arrival time observed to arrival time predicted for particular location. The smaller the better fit of data.

4Azimuthal Gap: 
Expressed in degree; the smaller the smaller the error in horizontal positioning of EQ. Large uncertainty is considered when exceeds 180° (both depth and location)
