Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

14.591°N 93.222°W

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

39.8km (24.7mi)

Region :  Puerto Madero, Mexico

Magnitude 4.4 Earthquake of Puerto Madero, Mexico 2014-09-06

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

a)  87km (54mi) W of Puerto Madero, Mexico

b)  99km (62mi) SSW of Mapastepec, Mexico

c)  102km (63mi) SW of Huixtla, Mexico

106km (66mi) WSW of Tapachula, Mexico

Location Uncertainty: 
4.4 mb
± 0.07
14.591°N, 93.222°W
39.8 km
± 8.2 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
164.6 km (1.48°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.94 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)
