Region : Pirgos, Greece

Magnitude 4.2 Earthquake of Pirgos, Greece 2014-09-14

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

a)  106km (66mi) S of Pirgos, Greece

b)  123km (76mi) SSW of Ierapetra, Greece

c)  140km (87mi) SSW of Agios Nikolaos, Greece

142km (88mi) S of Irakleion, Greece

e)  453km (281mi) SSE of Athens, Greece

Location Uncertainty: 
4.2 mb
± 0.09
34.046°N, 25.066°E--
10.0 km
± 2.0 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
138.8 km (1.25°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.04 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)
