Magnitude 3.2 Earthquake of Medford, Oklahoma 2014-09-17

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

a)  13km (8mi) WNW of Medford, Oklahoma

b)  49km (30mi) N of Enid, Oklahoma

c)  72km (45mi) WNW of Ponca City, Oklahoma

78km (48mi) WSW of Arkansas City, Kansas

Location Uncertainty: 
3.2 mb_lg
± 0.05
36.838°N, 97.878°W--
4.7 km
± 7.3 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
37.2 km (0.33°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.50 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)
