5.1km (3.2mi)

Region : Guthrie, Oklahoma

Magnitude 2.5 Earthquake of Guthrie, Oklahoma 2014-09-17

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

a)  6km (4mi) SSW of Guthrie, Oklahoma
b)  18km (11mi) N of Edmond, Oklahoma

c)  36km (22mi) NNE of Warr Acres, Oklahoma

37km (23mi) NNE of Bethany, Oklahoma

e) 39km (24mi) N of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Location Uncertainty: 
2.5 ml
35.818°N, 97.442°W--
5.1 km
± 5.6 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2

Travel Time Residual3
0.32 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)
