Magnitude 4.4 Earthquake of Khairpur Nathan Shah, Pakistan 2014-09-07

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

a) 42km (26mi) WNW of Khairpur Nathan Shah, Pakistan

b) 48km (30mi) W of Mehar, Pakistan

c)  51km (32mi) WSW of Warah, Pakistan

d) 55km (34mi) WNW of Sita Road, Pakistan

Location Uncertainty: 
4.4 mb
± 0.08
27.234°N, 67.333°E
30.2 km
± 6.8 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
827.1 km (7.43°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.16 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)
