Magnitude 3.2 Earthquake of Nikiski, Alaska 2014-09-10

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

 a)  51km (32mi) N of Nikiski, Alaska

 b)    65km (40mi) W of Anchorage, Alaska

 c)  90km (56mi) WSW of Knik-Fairview, Alaska

 d)  445km (277mi) SSW of Badger, Alaska

  1.  e)  869km (540mi) W of Whitehorse, Canada

Location Uncertainty: 
3.2 ml
61.144°N, 151.113°W
± 0.2 km
63.5 km
± 0.5 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2

Travel Time Residual3
0.73 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)
