  1.  e)  662km (411mi) NW of Terrace, Canada

Location Uncertainty: 
3.4 ml
58.301°N, 136.909°W
± 0.6 km
28.3 km
± 1.9 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2

Travel Time Residual3
0.96 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)
