Magnitude 3.3 Earthquake of Yale, Oklahoma 2014-09-17

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

a)  12km (7mi) WNW of Yale, Oklahoma

b)  20km (12mi) E of Stillwater, Oklahoma

c)  61km (38mi) ENE of Guthrie, Oklahoma

64km (40mi) W of Sand Springs, Oklahoma

Location Uncertainty: 
3.3 mb_lg
± 0.05
36.142°N, 96.829°W--
5.0 km
± 1.9 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
11.4 km (0.10°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.53 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)
