Magnitude 3.0 Earthquake of Chignik Lake, Alaska 2014-09-14

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

a)  97km (60mi) E of Chignik Lake, Alaska

b)    694km (431mi) SW of Anchorage, Alaska

c)  729km (453mi) SW of Knik-Fairview, Alaska

d)  1084km (674mi) SSW of Fairbanks, Alaska

  1. e)  1375km (854mi) WSW of Whitehorse, Canada

Location Uncertainty: 
3.0 ml
56.265°N, 157.195°W
± 1.2 km
106.8 km
± 1.3 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2

Travel Time Residual3
1.2 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)
