Region : Miyako, Japan

Magnitude 4.5 Earthquake of Miyako, Japan 2014-09-18

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

a) 138km (86mi) E of Miyako, Japan

b) 138km (86mi) E of Yamada, Japan

c) 143km (89mi) E of Otsuchi, Japan

d) 147km (91mi) ENE of Kamaishi, Japan

e) 546km (339mi) NE of Tokyo, Japan

Location Uncertainty: 
4.5 mb
± 0.12
39.533°N, 143.558°E
15.3 km
± 5.3 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
278.1 km (2.50°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.81 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)
