Magnitude 2.8 Earthquake of Helena, Oklahoma 2014-09-17

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

a)  22km (14mi) WSW of Helena, Oklahoma

b)  57km (35mi) W of Enid, Oklahoma

c)  78km (48mi) E of Woodward, Oklahoma

107km (66mi) N of Weatherford, Oklahoma

e)  144km (89mi) NW of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Location Uncertainty: 
2.8 ml
36.483°N, 98.512°W--
4.6 km
± 7.4 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2

Travel Time Residual3
0.75 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)
