Magnitude 3.0 Earthquake of Lindsay, Oklahoma 2014-09-23

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

a)  24km (15mi) S of Lindsay, Oklahoma

b)  39km (24mi) ENE of Duncan, Oklahoma

c)  59km (37mi) SE of Chickasha, Oklahoma

62km (39mi) NW of Ardmore, Oklahoma

Location Uncertainty: 
3.0 ml
34.621°N, 97.556°W--
5.0 km
± 1.6 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2

Travel Time Residual3
0.42 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)
