Magnitude 3.7 Earthquake of Suarez, Puerto Rico 2014-09-06

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

 a)  75km (47mi) N of Suarez, Puerto Rico

 b)    79km (49mi) NNE of San Juan, Puerto Rico

 c)  81km (50mi) N of Rio Grande, Puerto Rico

 d)  82km (51mi) NNE of Catano, Puerto Rico

Location Uncertainty: 
3.7 Md
± 0.00
19.112°N, 65.768°W
± 1.5 km
37.0 km
± 8.3 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
94.9 km (0.85°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.33 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)
