Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

10.0km (6.2mi)

Region : Pole Ojea, Puerto Rico

Magnitude 2.9 Earthquake of Pole Ojea, Puerto Rico 2014-09-11

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

a)  8km (5mi) SE of Pole Ojea, Puerto Rico

b)    17km (11mi) S of Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico

c)  18km (11mi) SSW of San German, Puerto Rico

d)  23km (14mi) S of Hormigueros, Puerto Rico

  1. e)  122km (76mi) WSW of San Juan, Puerto Rico

Location Uncertainty: 
2.9 Md
± 0.00
17.927°N, 67.119°W
± 1.0 km
10.0 km
± 0.5 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
8.8 km (0.08°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.17 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)
